THEATER | "Spring Awakening" 

Once banned in early 20th-century Germany for its themes of youthful lust and exploration, Frank Wedekind's 1891 play "Spring Awakening" has produced one of the most cutting-edge musicals of the past decade. The adaptation, created by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, opened on Broadway in 2008 and went on to win eight Tony awards, including best musical. The story follows a group of German teens at the turn-of-the-century: repressed by parents, schoolmasters, and their own sexualities, the friends begin to learn from each other. OFC Creations and RAPA are partnering with the LGBT Giving Circle and the Gay Alliance to present the show with a local cast — including many familiar faces in leading roles — through July 31.

"Spring Awakening" continues through Sunday, July 31, at Kodak Center Executive Theatre, 200 West Ridge Road. 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; 2 p.m. on Sundays. The Saturday, July 23, performance will feature ASL interpretation as well as a post-show talkback, and the July 30 show will also have a post-show talkback. Tickets are $25 general admission, $22 students (with valid ID) and seniors. 254-0073;
