15th Anniversary Concert production of ‘SPRING AWAKENING’ to take place at London’s Victoria Palace Theatre

Producers Jack Maple and Evelyn Hoskins have announced the 15th Anniversary Concert of the original West End production of Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik’s Tony, Olivier and Grammy award-winning musical, SPRING AWAKENING, based on the play by Frank Wedekind.

Celebrating the original London production’s 15th anniversary, the concert will take place on Sunday 2 June 2024 at Victoria Palace Theatre.

Tickets are on sale from 10am, Friday 2 February.  

Casting to be announced.

SPRING AWAKENING tells the story of adolescent anarchy, set to one of the most loved scores of the 21st century. A group of teenagers – silenced and controlled by a censorious society – discover a new world of feeling and freedom outside the classroom, with beautiful and devastating consequences. 

Speaking on the anniversary concert, Duncan Sheik said:

Spring Awakening is the first musical I worked on that managed to get to Broadway and then the West End. Being in London in 2009 for opening night at the Novello with that young and amazing cast was one of the highlights of my life.  It is more than exciting that 15 years on, London gets to experience this anniversary concert and I’m honoured that I can be some small part of that.

Steven Sater said:

My youthful dream was to be a part of the theatre in London. So for me, our brilliant original production of Spring Awakening at the Lyric, and then at the Novello, was an answered prayer.  Fifteen years later, to bring back that production for a one-night-only anniversary concert, is like having that prayer answered all over again.”

This anniversary concert will also be raising funds on behalf of Imogen Kinchin.

Imogen Kinchin was one of the original producers of SPRING AWAKENING in 2009, guiding the show and its young cast on their journey. Imogen was the Senior Producer at the Lyric Hammersmith for 10 years before joining Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures as Executive Director in 2018. In 2022, Imogen was diagnosed with Stage IV Bowel Cancer. Aside from being one of the most outstanding, creative, inspirational and respected producers in show business, she is a cherished wife, family member and friend. Her cancer is aggressive, yet her resilience is extraordinary, and she remains a positive and hopeful warrior in the face of adversity. A fund, established to support bespoke treatment and her family’s needs as they journey through this cruel disease, has raised over £80,000 to date.

The company of SPRING AWAKENING have kindly chosen to donate the proceeds from the concert to Imogen’s Fund and the link to donate is www.gofundme.com/f/imogens-fund

SPRING AWAKENING has direction by Jamie Armitage (SIX) and musical direction by Nigel Lilley (Newsies, Next to Normal, The Witches).

SPRING AWAKENING is produced by Jack Maple and Evelyn Hoskins.
