Part One: Spring Awakening
We’ll talk about one of the biggest Tony Award winning Broadway shows in years, now in Charlotte for the week…Spring Awakening. It’s a controversial story of teenage self-discovery set in 1891 in Germany. We’ll talk with cast members and one of the creators about how the story made it to the stage, and about how parents can use this production as a tool to talk with their children about sex, religion and intellectual freedom.
Jake Epstein – Actor, plays “Melchior” in Spring Awakening
Christy Altomare – Plays “Wendla” in Spring Awakening
Part Two: Woody Sez
We’ll meet the creator, cast and hear live music from the latest show to hit the Booth Playhouse in Charlotte…Woody Sez. The show celebrates the spirit of American folk legend Woody Guthrie. It’s a theatrical concert that uses Guthrie’s words and more than 25 of his songs to transport the audience through Guthrie’s sometimes tragic life.
Nick Corley – Director of Woody Sez
David Lutken – Actor and musician, plays “Woody” and is the creator of Woody Sez
