The show is set in 1891 Germany and follows six teenage boys and five teenage girls as they make their way through the minefield of adolescence. Although it focuses heavily on Wendla Bermann, Melchior Gabor, and Moritz Stiefel, the piece is largely an ensemble show. With grippingly tight, emotionally-charged harmonies littering the score, audiences are drawn deeply into each individual’s story. Wendla is struggling with feelings that are foreign to her and asks questions of the “Mama Who Bore Me.” Melchior the intellectual knows exactly what his feelings are, but is struggling with “All That’s Known” and the unfair amount of power adults possess. Moritz is basically struggling with everything and doesn't know how to relieve the pressure surrounding him explaining, “I Don’t Do Sadness.” And hoping for clarification on all of the issues they face, the young people turn to their parents for answers, all of whom only make things more confusing by dancing around “uncomfortable” subjects. In the absence of sound advice, the children’s worlds begin to unravel. SPRING AWAKENING calls on parents to inform their children that the adolescent emotions and experiences they face are a normal part of life and growing up.
This show is rated PG-16 for mature subject matter and language. NO nudity.

The Breakfast Club
This summer HAA will be doing a production of the cult classic, "The Breakfast Club". The rehearsal process will be unlike any you have been a part of. Auditions will be sometime in late May, early June. The cast list will be posted, actors will get their scripts and have the month of June to memorize. No scripts during rehearsals. All lines will be memorized beforehand. Rehearsals will be Mon-Thurs evenings 6-9 and some Saturday mornings beginning July 8th.
*Please note the dates have changed. The show will open August 9th and run two weekends, closing on the 17th.
"The Breakfast Club" is a powerful script that tells the story of a group of teenagers whose lives intertwine at Saturday detention. Each character is from a different "clique" at school. Each character reveals their own personal struggles. The cast is small, but if we have more talent than characters, we will add more relevant characters to the play. At the Harrington Arts Academy we like to give many actors, many opportunities to learn. This will be an amazing learning experience. Learn about the art of acting (pure acting), learn about the human condition, learn about people's personal struggles. This will be a very close-knit cast.
Each actor will write their own monologue for their audition. Creating a character that inspires them, or a story they think should be told. There will also be cold readings from the script. These will be open auditions. No need to sign up for a time. If you can't make the audition day, please contact Brittany Harrington and you can meet with her outside of the audition day.
Also, the language will be changed so the show will be PG-13 rating.
This will be an "Out of the Box Players" Producition, a sister company to Harrington Arts Academy.
