Tiffin University to present “Spring Awakening”

The Tiffin University Music Department is to present “Spring Awakening,” a rock musical, at 7 p.m. Feb. 20, 21 and 22 and at 2 p.m. on Feb. 23 in the Marion Center.

“Spring Awakening” introduces adolescents in Germany in 1891, examining issues of sexuality, self-discovery and belonging. The music, written by rocker Duncan Sheik, earned a Tony for Best Score and a Grammy for Best Soundtrack.

The cast is led by Noah Sgambellone as Melchior Gabor (Lexington, Ohio, Commercial Music major), Mallory Johnson as Wendla Bergman (Mason, Ohio, Forensic Science major) and Carter Bennett as Moritz Stiefel (Trempeleau, WI, Commercial Music major).

The cast features the talents of 19 Tiffin University students. Additional cast members are Audra Sennish (The Adult Women), Marin Tillman (Martha), Mishele Matlock (Ilse), Brynn Bishop (Anna), Olivia Calafato (Thea), Christian Moore (Adult Men), Issac Echegoyen (Adult Men), Daulton Shields (Otto/Ulbrecht), Tristen Johnson (Hanschen/Rupert), Junior Monroe (Ernst/Reinhold) and Andrew Zynga (George/Dieter). Ensemble members are Meredith Boes, Owen Brewer, Josephine Gabos, Julia Plumb and Callie Pullen.

Tickets are now available for purchase at www.tiffinmusic.com/springawakening and at the door before each performance. General admission is $8, and $5 admission is available to TU students with student ID.

Because of the potentially triggering and mature subject matter, Spring Awakening is not recommended for anyone under the age of 16.
