Brian Swiggum of Cashton, Wis., is performing in the spring musical at University of Wisconsin-Stout. Swiggum is majoring in hotel, restaurant and tourism management.

"Spring Awakening: A Rock Musical," will be presented April 19-20 at Harvey Hall Theatre. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 and are available at http://tickets.uwstout.edu or at the Memorial Student Center, 715-232-1431.

The action follows a group of adolescents as they question social mores and explore the boundaries of their intellectual, sexual and spiritual identities. With strong language and sexual content, it is intended for mature audiences.

"It was a radical play more than a century ago, but it still resonates with contemporary audiences," said Paul Calenberg, University Theatre director.

Calenberg directs and choreographs an "exciting" modern adaptation but one that is "in the style of German Expressionism, which was the style of the original play in 1891," he said.

The lead roles are played by: Maggie Creel, as Wendla Bergman (Creel, of Oakdale, Minn., is a freshman majoring in hotel, restaurant and tourism management); Jack Lazorik, as Moritz Stiefel (Lazorik, of Shoreview, Minn., is a junior majoring in psychology); Kevin Roland, as Melchior (Roland, of Middleton, is a junior majoring in graphic communications management).

Other students performing are: Isaac Burk, freshman, Eau Claire; Annie Foster, freshman, Rosemount, Minn.; Elizabeth Merrill, senior, Rochester, Minn.; Kaitlyn Rabuck, sophomore, Germantown; Joseph Saucerman, freshman, Marshfield; Britta Sicora, freshman, St. Louis Park, Minn.; Caleb Sullivan, freshman, Stoughton; Brian Swiggum, freshman, Cashton; Tyler Vucinovich, sophomore, Lakeville, Minn.; and Barbara Young, freshman, Hutchinson, Minn.
