New Tour Stops Announced!

We are excited that demand for Spring Awakening continues to grow across the USA. Here are a few added tour stops that have recently announced their next season. Currently, only subscriptions for the entire season are on sale (subscribers will get the best seats). You can sign up for newsletters on each venue's website to be alerted when single tickets are available for purchase (usually not until 3-4 months beforehand). Which one are you most excited for?! Shout out!

The Marcus Center, Milwaukee, WI Oct 6-11, 2009

The Music Hall, Kansas City, MO Oct 12-18

The Bass Concert Hall, UTPAC, Austin, TX Oct 20-25, 2009

Orange County Performing Arts Center, Costa Mesa, CA Nov 17-29, 2009

Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Denver CO Dec 1-19,2009

Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, Charlotte, NC Feb 2-7, 2010

Rochester Broadway Theatre League, Rochester NY Feb 9-14, 2010

Fabulous Fox Theatre, Atlanta, GA March 9-14, 2010

Dallas Center for the Performing Arts, Dallas TX March 23 - April 4. 2010

Arsht Center, Miami FL May 11-16, 2010

Carr Performing Arts Center, Orlando FL May 18-23, 2010

It looks, then, that we will not be in the northeast corridor for at least a full year after Washington DC, so if you are anywhere CLOSE to Providence, Boston, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington DC, plan your ROAD TRIP now!

We will have Guilty Ones Street Teams at all these locations. If you would like to sign up to help promote the show, send your name, age, and phone number from your primary email address to: nationalguiltyones@gmail.com Put the tour stop closest to you in the subject heading! If you are more than an hour away, it is unlikely we will be able to use your help.

NEW TOTALLYTRUCKED! VIDEO: Krystina and Chase in Dallas
Chase and Krystina flew from Toronto to the land of BBQ and steerhorns, Dallas, Texas, to announce the Dallas Center for the Performing Art's 2010 season. These two live it up at ultra lux hotel Palomar but soon get to work as they sing "Don't Do Saddness/Blue Wind." This is probably the first time anyone has seen this combination. It's a Swing Awakening! Check out the SA cake in the end - yumm!

Yay! I nearly had a heart attack when I saw this. But then I saw the date gap between Austin and Costa Mesa and saw the words "recently announced their seasons," and was immensely relieved. Needless to say, I am most excited for the stop that will be between those two, if the freaking company would announce their season already!!!

COSTA MESA COSTA MESA COSTA MESA COSTA MESA COSTA MESA COSTA MESA. I missed you guys the first time you came around Southern California, and I am unbelievably excited about seeing you guys. I CANNOT WAIT, AUGH!

Kaedtiann said...

Wow, 2010 already. Is there any chance of you guys coming further up the Pacific coast? California's a bit far. Exciting, though, anyway. :)

Rachel said...

YAY COSTA MESA!!!!! I'm going to NY around that time as well, but my mom promised me that I could see it sometime before or after the trip!!!! YAY 3RD TIME!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Antonio said...

SOOO EXCITED FOR THE STOP IN COSTA MESA!!!!!!!!!!!!! I live like ten minutes from the theatre and I am most definitely signing up to be on the guilty ones street team. I'll probably end up broke from watching the show so many times when it comes here. lol. CAN"T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

OMIGOD YES! MIAMI!

I think I'm going to implode. Or cry from happiness. I've been waiting for this FOREVER, and now it's 10 minutes away from my house...YAYYY!

Mia said...

I am SOO excited for Charlotte and Atlanta (especially Charlotte)! Yay for the South!

COSTA MESA...

YOU HAVE GOT ME FREAKING OUT, PUN!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Pun! Help! What's the deal with Chicago? SA.com says it closes the 23rd! The theatre says 16th!! ARRGH! I have a weekend off on the 23rd and was going to fly out.

On another note... yay for Rochester!!! Definitely close enough to swing down for some winter fun next year!

Katie said...

I'm stoked for KC! I live in southwest MO and I saw the show in STL on Valentine's day. I knew KC was on the list but then they took it off the website for a while and I wasn't sure. I'm really happy I can see it again. This time I'm going for stage seats hopefully!

DENVER DENVER DENVER DENVER! I cannot wait till you guys come to the mile high city!

Lara said...

Chase and Krystina are amazing! Pun, just a suggestion you could hopefully pass onto the cast, could we get more videos with the swings (esp. Perry and Julie B.)? Thanks!!

Pun said...

Nonny said," This drives me insane because I go to Booker T. and I live less than 5 minutes away from that hotel...... And I did not see them."

It's not something we announced, sorry. It was a private announcement, mostly for local press. But you get to have us in your city soon! Yay!

Kaedtianne--I sure hope it's possible. We were already in Seattle and Portland, but then again, we're doubling back to Arizona when we've already been in Tempe. You should write to your local theatre presenter that brings in Broadway shows. It's really up to them. They need to hear that there is demand for us to come back.

Nonny asked about Chicago: Im trying to get most accurate info on that...will get back to you, Nonny.

Lara--If you didn't know, you can get your Perry fix with his Extended Run series...three videos just added yesterday! Hilarious! Link to the channel is on the left hand side of the blog. Otherwise, we try to feature as many people in the company that we can, but not everyone has signed up to make videos for the fans (which is understandable given everything they already have to do), so you'll see some cast members more than others. We'll certainly take it under consideration. Thanks!

Irene (from Guam!) said...

Is there any chance of you guys stopping by Guam? :P
just a fantasy. i dont think our theater here is good enough for the spring awakening set. lol
but we love you!

Anonymous said...

does this blog announce any info on when the swings will go on for a performance? or is it just something that will happen without notice?

Mark said...

COSTA MESA!!!!!!! ALRIGHT SO-CAL GUILTY ONES! LA AND ORANGE COUNTY, WE CAN REDEEM OURSELVES. If you're up for it I'm ready to start scheduling events.

Pun said...

Update on Chicago: Sorry for the confusion. The official dates are till Aug the 16th.

Swings: No, we will never announce when here when swings and understudies go on. Some of the cast members will, though. Visit Lucas', Krystina's and Andy's blog.

Irene--sorry, I don't think Guam is on the horizon in the short term...but the rights are available...put it on in your local high school and college!

New Tour Stops: Sorry, a few dates were left out, including Schenectedy, NY and Greenville South Carolina. I'll update them to the blog post soon.

Mia said...

I already commented on this, but I just wanted to say that my city's national tour season got announced, and there was this whole thing about kid-friendly and non-kid-friendly shows. Seriously? Baltimore has the second-highest murder rate and one of the highest drug rates in the country...once the critics see the show in June, though, they'll be kicking themselves!!!

Anonymous said...

Pun, You said you were doubling back to Arizona -- when will that be? I saw the show when it was here in Tempe and would LOVE to see it again. I was even considering a road trip to CA if you weren't coming back soon. However, if you are coming here....

Pun said...

Anonymous,
sorry for the false alarm. We were originally scheduled to play the Music Hall in Tucson in Oct but they backed out on us for reasons unknown to me. Sorry about that. Umm...road trip to Costa Mesa...?

Anonymous said...

Hopefully there is a "soft sale" for tickets in Costa Mesa like in Chicago. I'm making a road trip from Arizona and would LOVE to get great seats!! You guys are so awesome!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I send fan mail to the cast?

If you just want to send a quick note to all the cast members telling them you appreciate their work, you can email us here at totallytruckedblog (at) gmail (dot) com. I will be happy to forward your email to the cast, but to preserve their privacy, it is unlikely they will email you back (I will, though).

You can also send individual performers fan mail and care packages care of the theatre at which we are currently performing or will be performing. Go to the theatre's website (listed above), find their mailing address, write the actor's name as well as "Spring Awakening" and send c/o the theatre. Remember, we are often at these theatres for only a week so make sure to allow for delivery times. It's a better bet to send it to the theatre we will be going to next as they can always hold packages for us until we arrive. Letters received late will not be forwarded to our next location.

2. How Can I Audition for Spring Awakening?
From time to time, we have open calls in larger cities across the US. We will post any additional open calls here. Subscribe if you havn't already to keep informed. In the meantime, we've made it easy for you to submit yourself singing a folk/alternative rock song on video. Go to: http://www.springawakening.com/videoauditionsubmission/ Make sure your submission is less than 500 MB and is one of the accepted formats. Your screen should change and you should get a confirmation that says your submission has been received. Trust us, people are called in this way. Lucas Wells was cast because of an online submission!


3. How Do I Score On Stage Seats?
That is really up to the individual theatres. Most of them won't release the seats until just before performances because they want to make sure the house is sold first. Some do so online, although the ticketing systems they have in place often can't accommodate our unique seats onstage. Most of them are available only at the box office (though you can purchase them for a performance in the future). The Guilty Ones Street Team members have the rights to purchase these seats before the general public. Any seats left over will be released to the box office and may also be purchased as part of rush tickets (discounted, day-of tickets).

4. How Do I Join The Guilty Ones?

The National Guilty Ones Street Team is a way for fans of the show in each of our tour stops to help us spread the word. You will get access to parties, meet and greets, and other special events while meeting new friends who share your passion for the show, all while gaining some valuable marketing experience. You must be at least 15 yrs old. Email your contact info to nationalguiltyones (at) gmail (dot) com.

5. Can I Get Discounts?

From time to time, a theatre may offer us discounts to send out to our fans. We will post any here on the blog. Subscribe now!

6. Who runs this site? This site was created for fans to stay connected with our touring cast and follow their adventures around North America. Ideally, it would be in the voice of the cast members. Unfortunately, our cast members are often too tired or busy to post lengthy blog posts on a regular basis. Company members will contribute a post from time to time and every month we will have a compiled blog post that most every company member will participate in. The other stuff like updates, etc, will be posted by me. My name is Pun. I work for the production, love this show, its cast, and our fans, and I'm so very glad you're here!





Co 231 W 39th Street Suite 1200 New York, N.Y. 10018.
