Spring Awakening in Durham, NC!

SPRING AWAKENING IN DURHAM, NC

We're back in the south this week, in the "Bull" city! The brand spankin' new Durham Performing Arts Center is putting us up in some really nice digs. As Krystina Alabado tweeted, "exhausted and loving our little apartments here in Durham! Finally some space!" Matt Shingledecker also tweeted, "so close to Elon!", (his and Taylor Trensch's alma mater). We'll be here from March 2nd -7th, 2010.

GET TICKETS: Tickets start at just $25 here: http://www.dpacnc.com/default.asp?dpac=19&objId=103 Tix are going fast in this market. Act now.

DID YOU KNOW? Durham was nicknamed the "Bull City" in the late 1800s when the Blackwell Tobacco Company named its product "Bull" Durham Tobacco. By the time James B. Duke of the American Tobacco Company purchased the Blackwell Tobacco Company in 1898, Bull Durham was the most famous trademark in the world. It is now a thriving, modern city known for its medicine industry and Duke University.

REVIEWS

HERALD SUN "Taylor Trensch, who plays Moritz, steals the show. "Spring Awakening" is also a talker and a show that makes you remember your own teen years and hope that those you know and love can navigate them unscathed."
http://www.heraldsun.com/view/full_story/6560084/article--Spring-Awakening--a-raw-look-at-teen-angst?instance=homeseventhleft

NEW OBSERVER Why “Spring Awakening” won eight Tony Awards is evident from the first few minutes. This innovative work, fitting an indie pop score to a century-old play, mixes traditional theater with rock concert. Although its treatment of teen sexuality, child abuse and societal repression is frank, raw and dark, no theater devotee should miss the national touring production now at the Durham Performing Arts Center.

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!
