I've known this theater company for years and am a huge fan. Spring Awakening may be their best show yet! It's a story set in late 19th century Germany-- a rock musical about teenagers and their personal struggles with music by Ducan Sheik. The...continued

My friend got my boyfriend and I passes for a sneak preview (a technical rehearsal) of this show, which opens on Saturday. They are still working on getting it ready for the public on the technical side, but on the artistic side, it's professional...continued

The play was performed by an incredibly talented group of young people. It was immensely moving and amazing. I have been wanting to see the show for a while and was delighted when Goldstar offered it. The story is not for the faint of heart,...continued

Several of the young performers were excellent. The adult characters were much harder to understand with their fake-German accents. The play includes mature subject matter and vulgarity; these were not an issue for me but could be for other...continued

Excellent production from CYC Theatre! I would give the theater itself 3 stars as it isn't the best designed place (sides and rear seating have poor visability). The musical itself was 5 stars! I have seen Spring awakening in the past and this...continued

This was an amateur production with talented but inexperienced young people, a fact that was either not explained by Goldstar or which I overlooked.

The sexually explicit subject matter (beatings, simulations of sex acts and masturbation) was...continued

I did not enjoy this event - acting was excellent but I found some of the contents very offensive - in fact disgusting. I left at intermission.

My comments have little to do with the production, although production values were an issue: the segue music was four to eight bars too long repeatedly, there was too much dead air between scenes, and the difficulties the leads experienced with...continued

The music was great. Well rehearsed and rocking. I think there was a problem with the speaker system as I found it difficult to hear all the words clearly. I still enjoyed it.

Great energy felt by each cast member. Leads- wonderful chemistry and voices. Enjoyed the content and message of the play- amazing it was written so long ago with such an ever-present social issue: Teen angst and parents needing to know how to...continued
