Dear friends of NCC Theatre,

Rehearsals are in full swing for our next production, the Tony "Best Musical" award-winner, Spring Awakening. Come see why it is the recipient of eight Tonys, four Drama Desk awards, and a Grammy for its cast album recording!
Based on the 1891 German play of the same name by Frank Wedekind, 'Spring Awakening' explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. Set in late 19th-century Germany, the musical tells the story of teenagers discovering the inner and outer tumult of adolescent sexuality. In the musical, alternative rock is employed as part of the folk-infused rock score.

Due to themes, this show is recommended for mature audiences.
Mary Eitzenberger - Martha
Mary feels honored to be part of such a poignant show. Since 2015, she’s made people feel beautiful in her cosmetology career, and recently transitioned to a leadership role at Michael Perry Hair Studio in Bethlehem. Though she is busy at work and planning her November wedding, she knew she had to audition. She graduated from the Charter Arts High School in Bethlehem, and will always be a performer at heart. Her first show back since Covid, Mary last played 'Bebe' in MunOpCo’s A Chorus Line in 2019.
Connor Sternberg - Ernst / Reinhold
Connor is very excited to be a part of his first production at NCC, where he is in his first year as a theatre major.

Some of his past shows include Pippin (Ensemble), Mary Poppins (Valentine), Anything Goes (Sailor), and Once Upon a Mattress (Knight).

Cade Kocher - Otto / Ulbrecht
Cade has performed in shows such as Cinderella, And Then There Were None, Mary Poppins, The Addams Family, and A Christmas Carol: A Live Radio Play.

This is Cade's first performance in NCC Theatre, where he is a current student at NCC pursuing a degree in theatre.
David Lippincott - Adult Men
Some of David's other credits at NCC include Collision, Last Days of Judas Iscariot, Suburbia, and Detroit.

He was also a part of NCC Summer Theatre’s 2019 season, portraying various ensemble roles in Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story and Jesus Christ Superstar. Most recently, David appeared in Reckless at Cedar Crest College.
