Menlo School presents 'Spring Awakening'

Menlo School will present "Spring Awakening," described as a "hard-hitting, cutting-edge rock/pop show," at Florence Moore Theater on the Menlo School campus at 50 Valparaiso Ave. in Atherton.

There will be 7:30 p.m. performances Thursday through Sunday, Nov. 17-20, and a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, Nov. 19.

"Spring Awakening" is based on an 1891 story of a repressed, rural German community and the sorrows and joys of its teenagers. The show won eight Tony Awards in 2007, including for best musical, best book and best score.

"We feel very fortunate to have received the rights to do this musical, which celebrates the journey from youth to adulthood with power, poignancy, and passion," says director Beth Orr.

The musical contains mature themes and language and parental discretion is advised for younger than teenage audiences.

Visit to buy tickets at $8 for students and $10 for adults. Tickets will also be sold at the door.
