In light of the recent Dramat casting cycle of the Fall Mainstage musical Spring Awakening, a coalition of students of color and trans students are launching our own cabaret titled Spring Arising.
In an open-mic style, Spring Arising will showcase songs from the musical featuring a cast of exclusively trans folks and POC.
The mission of the production is to celebrate the talents and resilience of trans and POC communities. We aim to highlight the nuances and wealth of experiences that we bring to an artistic world which actively excludes us.
Spring Arising will require minimal commitment in terms of rehearsal times - the bulk of rehearsals and performances will occur during the week of October 28th through November 3rd in the Hopper Cabaret. We will host an introductory meeting on October 4th in the La Casa Cultural Center Gallery from 6-8pm.
If you are interested in getting involved as a performer, musician, stage manager, or lighting designer, please come to the meeting or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In solidarity we stand!
