Almeida announce full casting for musical Spring Awakening

The Almeida Theatre have announced the full cast for Rupert Goold’s revival of the award-winning musical Spring Awakening.

Winner of the Tony and Olivier awards for best musical, Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik’s (American Psycho: A New Musical, Almeida Theatre and Broadway) Spring Awakening is based on the ground-breaking and once-banned 19th century play by Frank Wedekind, in its first London revival since the 2009 UK premiere. 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.

Joining the previously announced Laurie Kynaston and Amara Okereke are Nathan Armarkwei-Laryea, Asha Banks, Taylor Bradshaw, Catherine Cusack, Carly-Sophia Davies, Kit Esuruoso, Mark Lockyer, Bella Maclean, Emily Ooi, Joe Pitts, Maia Tamrakar, Stuart Thompson and Zheng Xi Yong.

Tickets for the production go on sale to Gold, Silver and Bronze Friends from Monday 18 October, Almeida Friends from Wednesday 20 October and on general sale from Monday 25 October.

The Almeida is currently showing a new version of Macbeth starring James McArdle and Saoirse Ronan, in her UK stage debut.

Spring Awakening runs from Tuesday 7 December 2021 – Saturday 22 January 2022
