Spring Awakening in Rochester, NY!

We're back on the east coast for three engagements! For all our fans on Broadway who have been missing the show--time to make travel plans and get your tickets now for Rochester, Schenectady and Hartford!

The winter storm that hit the east coast messed up our travel plans to Rochester and the cast was forced to split into two travel groups. This created a friendly (or not so friendly) war of words on Twitter between cast members in Group 1 and 2.

Chase Davidson: Group one is way more skinny and talented than group two. We flew on lady gaga's private jet that served chipotle and coldstone...and gold.

Just to further reinforce their fabulosity, Ben Fankhauser tweeted this picture of Group one's hair teasing party in Rochester:

Hair Teasing Party!

DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE: "Frankly, I didn't know what to expect from the musical, and wondered how Rochester Broadway Theatre League patrons would view a controversial production that makes Rent and Avenue Q seem tame by comparison.
The overall consensus was "dark but beautiful" — and I had to agree." I would rate this play R for real. Yes, it's provocative, but its growing pains have heart. http://www.democratandchronicle.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=20102110330

ROCHESTER CITY NEWSPAPER: A rave! " Of course, it helps to have a fantastic cast bringing the songs and words to life. Altomare and Epstein lead a great group of young actors (and older ones - Angela Reed and John Wojda do excellent work bringing to life a variety of adult roles in the play). The tiny Altomare has a piercing, haunting soprano voice, and even her most difficult melodic passes seem totally effortless. Epstein is commanding in his lower register and slides through his many falsetto portions with expert precision. Other stand-outs include Taylor Trensch, who balances terror, rage, anxiety, and despair as poor, doomed Moritz; "Canadian Idol" star Steffi D as sweet-voiced outcast Ilse; and Andy Mientus, who capitalizes on every moment of the fairly minor character of Hanschen to deliver some of the night's funniest, sexiest moments." http://www.rochestercitynewspaper.com/entertainment/stage/2010/02/THEATER-REVIEW-RBTLs-Spring-Awakening/

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.
