Spring Awakening Musical Watch Party @ Central Artstation
Apr 16 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Stage Center: @HOME kicks off our 10th Anniversary Season when tickets go on sale Monday, March 29
for the first Mainstage production of 2021, SPRING AWAKENING, the Tony-winning BEST MUSICAL with
music by Duncan Sheik, book/lyrics by Steven Sater, and based on the play by Frank Wedekind. The
event was captured on location in NWLA over 6 weeks, and will be streamed to your favorite device
this April. We are also hosting in-person watch parties at Central Artstation! The rock musical is directed
by SC Artistic Director Jared Watson, with choreography by Zhailon Levingston (on hiatus from
Broadway’s TINA TURNER musical), and musical direction by Seth Taylor.
A heart-pounding score. A heartrending story. A barrier-breaking fusion of morality, sexuality, and
rock&roll. No wonder Spring Awakening has awakened audiences like no other musical in years. The
winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical! Based on the infamous 1891 Frank Wedekind play
and featuring an original score by Grammy-nominated recording star Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater,
Spring Awakening is a story of uncontrollable emotions and undeniable passions, of first loves and
lasting regrets. Haunting and electrifying, the show celebrates the unforgettable journey into
adulthood with a power and a poignancy that you will never forget. The New York Observer says
“Once in a generation, if we’re lucky, an unexpected new musical comes along and changes
everything. That is the thrilling achievement of Spring Awakening.”
Spring Awakening stars Cade Ostermeyer, Selena Simmons, Aiden Poling, & Maddison Gilcrease and
features the talents of Darion Elie, Alyssa Farmer, Fordham Hammond, Camren Hohn, Jackson
Holoubek, Sarah Lord Holoubek, Leah Nansubuga, Morgan Tate, Hannah Wallace, with special

Ask for Kevin to be your tour guide and show you the wonders that engineers working with pencil, paper and slide rule 100 years ago were able to accomplish. This is a go-not-miss while in Shreveport!

A NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK AND A NATIONAL CIVIL ENGINEERING LANDMARK

The Shreveport Water Works Museum is free and open to the public, but DONATIONS are happily accepted. Though the Museum belongs to the City of Shreveport, the Museum Friends, the McNeill Street Pumping Station Preservation Society (We know.

with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman & Glenn Slater, and a book by Doug Wright. The
event was captured on sound stages over 10 weeks, and will be streamed to your favorite device. We

SCSOPA Director of Education Maddison Gilcrease, with choreography by Kaitlyn Bundrick-Brown, and

Journey “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR., an
enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance. In a magical underwater
kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home — and her fins — behind
and live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father, make a deal with the evil sea witch,
and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she’s the girl whose enchanting voice he’s been seeking.

Come see our 130-year-old Victorian treasure! The McNeill pumping station is a turn-of-the-century (the LAST century, that is) water works that was THE LAST KNOWN STEAM-POWERED MUNICIPAL WATER TREATMENT PLANT IN THE UNITED STATES when its steam engines were finally retired in 1980.

Ask for Kevin to be your tour guide and show you the wonders that engineers working with pencil, paper and slide rule 100 years ago were able to accomplish. This is a go-not-miss while in Shreveport!

A NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK AND A NATIONAL CIVIL ENGINEERING LANDMARK

The Shreveport Water Works Museum is free and open to the public, but DONATIONS are happily accepted. Though the Museum belongs to the City of Shreveport, the Museum Friends, the McNeill Street Pumping Station Preservation Society (We know. Long name.) is responsible for paying employees and other costs of keeping it open. Every little bit helps us. Thank you!
