Once in a generation, a musical comes along that changes everything, and as the sprightly young cast of Spring Awakening get ready to warm up their vocal chords for next weekend’s debut, audiences around the world are already hooked on what is destined to become one of the cult shows of this decade.

Spring Awakening has already won more Tony awards than any other musical in recent years and its unbridled success looks set to continue as the show premiers in more and more countries around the globe. Lucky Maltese theatre-goers will be some of the first audiences to watch the show, preceding Germany, Tokyo and Canada.

The musical, which has been Broadway’s most talked-about show of late, is a groundbreaking fusion of morality, sexuality and rock and roll that has awakened the theatre world like no other musical in recent years. The show celebrates the unforgettable journey of three friends from innocence to adulthood, and treats it with a power, a poignancy and a passion you will never forget!

The show’s incredible musical is in the hands of renowned local percussionist Renzo Spiteri. Speaking about the show Mr Spiteri said: “From the moment I heard the score for Spring Awakening I knew that we were on to something. I find the music very engaging indeed. It rocks at times and is so tender at others creating an unrivalled atmosphere. The music speaks for itself, as well as the talented cast performing it. Audiences are bound to be as drawn in by it as we are.”

The show includes hit numbers such as Mama Who Bore Me, Touch Me and The Word of Your Body. The hit show, which is being produced locally by the Malta Amateur Dramatics Club (MADC –, is directed by Wesley Ellul.

It will be staged from 17 to 19 and 24 to 27 April at St James Cavalier.
