What's Happening Around Town for April 22, 3013


Theatre 360 Brings Back Spring Awakening
On May 10th, Theatre 360 Performing Arts is putting on a very unusual and jaw-dropping production of Spring Awakening with their students ages 13 to 19. In late 2012, they took the big risk of producing Spring Awakening for one weekend and realized what a visceral experience and huge success the students had with the production. Ticket demand exceeded the seats available so they have brought it back for more performances. There will be a preview performance on May 9 at 7:00 pm and the show will run May 10 – 19, Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 3:00 pm at Porticos Theatre, 2033 E. Washington Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91104. For tickets and more information go to www.theatre360.org.
