"Broadway may never be the same."

-The New York Times

Get up close & personal with the new ONSTAGE series at La Mirada Theatre! A new, intimate theatre experience has been created by placing 199 audience seats on the stage. The stage will be filled with and incredible award-winning musical AND the audience. Join us for the premiere production of a new series! Seating is VERY limited.

Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Spring Awakening is a rock musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind's 1891 expressionist play about the trials and tribulations, and the exhilaration of the teen years.

It’s Germany, 1891. The beautiful young Wendla explores her body and asks her mother where babies come from. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior defends his buddy Moritz -- a boy so traumatized by puberty he can’t concentrate on anything. One afternoon in the woods, Wendla and Melchior discover a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. Spring Awakening explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children and celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget.
