Listen to Erin Gignac’s interview with “Spring Awakening” lead Alicia Humphrey

The Western Michigan University Department of Theatre continues its season, Awaken, with the Tony award-winning musical “Spring Awakening” on Friday, Oct. 26.

Alicia Humphrey plays the lead role of Wendla, a curious teenager in need of guidance from her mother. Since the scene is set in a repressive religious society in Germany in the 19th century, Wendla isn’t told much about the “birds and the bees.”

In the interview, she expands on her role as Wendla and describes why the minimalistic set allows the voices, and minds of the characters, to explain the story.

Here are the performance times from The University Theatre’s website:

October 26, 27 at 8:00 p.m.
October 28 at 7:00 p.m.
November 1, 2 at 8:00 p.m.
November 3 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
November 4 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased on The University Theatre’s website, over the phone, or in person. WMU student tickets are $5 with a Bronco ID.
