Video: Seasons of Spring

Seasons Of Spring - A look back at our first year

How do you measure a year? Hundreds of performances, kisses, videos and blog posts later, the cast of Spring Awakening have shared some of their most fun, exciting, and touching moments on the road, spreading the SA love across the country, performing to thousands every night. Before we embark on our second year with some old and new faces, Freddy Hall wanted to create a video to look back and ask...how do you measure a year? Thanks Freddy!

And feel free to post a comment below on what has been your favorite videos, photo, or blog captured this past year.

I know..my jaw dropped too...until I realized she actually said..."number of times I came...back."
LOL

Ahaha! I just understood what Claire said. It was very SA appropriate I guess.

Rozzie said...

Irene from Guam said...

Miss Ripley said...

Sienna said...

my favorite SA video of all time is still the "Dressing Room Rehearsal" video with Steffi and Blake doing their Don't Do Sadness/Blue Wind dialogue with the foam ball...priceless!

I saw SA when it came to Louisville,Ky. This has to be by FAR my favorite musical and I really don't think anyone else could have done it better. When I met everyone after the show, you all were so nice and such humble performers!!!!
It's sad that not all of the cast will go onto the 2nd tour but I just wanted to say that you all are absolutely AMAZING performers, everytime I perform I just have to activate my SA energy and Im completely pumped for a show :D haha

I measure my year in:
1. How many Spring Awakening videos I've watched
2. How many times I listened to Spring Awakening songs
3. How many times I cried because of how happy Spring Awakening made me, and how much I miss watching the show.
4. How many times I fell in love with a Spring Awakening cast member.

i really think the tour cast should record a spring awakening album
b/c its listening to the OBC has a different effect than listening to the tour cast...
no offense to the other casts b/c everyone is good and i have loved all the casts....but i like the tour better and would love to listen to a CD of them.

This first year has been so amazing - falling in love with this talented cast, falling more in love with the show than I'd thought possible, watching all of those great videos. You get such a feeling of nostalgia just thinking about it all. Thank you, Spring Awakening and tour cast, for changing our lives.

@Anonymous: I think there should be a tour cast recording too! How can we make that happen?

I saw the Tour Cast almost a year ago when they came to Portland, and not a day has passed when I haven't listened to the songs, thought about the story and message, and all around obsessed over this show. Good luck for the upcoming year!

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!
