Spring Awakening in Charlotte, NC!

We're in the beautiful town of Charlotte, North Carolina! This stop, Matt Shingledecker and Taylor Trensch will act as hosts for the cast and crew. They both went to Elon University and are so excited to be back! Matt also grew up in Charleston, SC, not too far away (and where alum Claire Sparks is going to school; we can't wait to see her again soon).

It's hard to believe we've been on the road for this long. We celebrated our 500th performance last week in Ft. Myers. Woo Hoo! Check out this cake that was made for us!

500th performance Spring Awakening

TICKET INFO: Come see us at the BLUMENTHAL PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, Belk Theatre! Tickets start at only $20 and trust me, they are going FAST for this engagement. If you've been snoozing, don't dilly dally:
Get tickets here: http://www.blumenthalcenter.org/default.asp?blumenthal=59&objId=1242 or call 704-372-1000.

STAGE DOOR: After the show, come on by and say hi to the cast; stage door is on 101 North College St

DID YOU KNOW... The city of Charlotte was named for German Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, an avid supporter of the fine arts

POST SHOW DISCUSSIONS: Post-show discussions are scheduled following these four performances: Wed. (2/3 - 7:30 p.m.), Thurs. (2/4 at 7:30 p.m.), Fri. (2/5 at 8:00 p.m.), and Sat. (2/6 at 8:00 p.m.).

STUDENT RUSH: Student Rush tickets will be available at the box office two hours prior to curtain for each performance if seats are available. Ticket buyers must present a valid student ID and can purchase one $20 ticket per ID.

Get your ticket in advance without having to stand in line! To get the student pricing, you can order in advance, but you have to pick up the tickets in person, and show student ID at that time. More info: http://ev12.evenue.net/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/SEGetGroupList?prc=SPRING1&caller=PR&linkID=ncb&RDAT=&RSRC

ANNOUNCEMENT! There’s a free pre-show party for college students tonight, February 2nd, from 6PM to 7PM in the Belk Mezzanine Lobby.

AFFILIATE CLUBS: It's not too late to sign up for one of the Blumenthal's affiliate clubs to get pre-show parties and other goodies all for free! There's one for students, one for adults in their 20s and 30s, a social group for gays and lesbians, and one just for educators! How awesome is that? http://www.blumenthalcenter.org/default.asp?blumenthal=49

ONSTAGE SEATS: On-stage seats are all gone. A good portion were reserved for the Guilty Ones Street Team (thanks so much, guys!) and the rest were gone just an hour and a half after they were made available to the public. If there are no-shows or returns, they will be re-sold at the box office.


CHARLOTTE MAGAZINE Interview with Matt Shingledecker: http://www.charlottemagazine.com/Charlotte-Magazine/February-2010/An-Early-Spring/

CHARLOTTE OBSERVER Interview with Duncan Shiek: talking about his high school experience, ""I wasn't one of the popular kids, but not unpopular - kind of on my own track. There's always a huge amount of angst about who you are, what's cool and what's not, so there are roiling emotions." http://www.charlotteobserver.com/312/story/1211030.html

QNOTES (reprinted from SeattleGayScene) " Spring Awakening proves why it’s Broadway’s best musical... not only connects with a younger crowd but is highly entertaining for both young and old audiences alike. This show is so rocking that you cannot help but love it. Literally, I have to say that this is one of the best shows I have seen on stage in a long time..."http://goqnotes.com/5095/spring-awakening-proves-why-its-broadways-best-musical/

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.
