Spring Awakening 

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Oct. 21
Price: $25-$30
Stray Dog Theatre opens its fifteenth season with the crowd-pleasing musical Spring Awakening, which is based on the 1891 play by Frank Wedekind, as adapted by Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik. Although well over 100 years old, Wedekind's play about a group of German school children trying to figure out how to make the leap to adulthood still feels fresh. Parents continue to worry about their children growing up too quickly, today's children also see themselves as young adults who are ready to expand their boundaries, and both teens and adults still worry about what the future will hold. The clothes may change, but the bumps and bruises remain the same. Stray Dog Theatre presents Spring Awakening at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday (October 5 to 21) at the Tower Grove Abbey (2236 Tennessee Avenue; www.straydogtheatre.org). There is an additional performance at 8 p.m. Wednesday, October 18. Tickets are $25 to $30.
