Natick, MA – Will Anderson and Andrew Ramsey, both of Weston, MA will take the stage in Walnut Hill School for the Arts’ spring production of Spring Awakening the Musical. Ramsey will play several of the adult male roles in the show, while Anderson contributes his talent to the ensemble.
Spring Awakening is a rock musical adaptation of German playwright Frank Wedekind’s 19th century expressionist play of the same name. Set to music by Duncan Sheik, the show explores the trials, tribulations, and exhilarations of the teenage years. The original Broadway production won eight Tony Awards, as well as four Drama Desk Awards and a Grammy (for the cast album).
Anderson is a junior at Walnut Hill where he has performed in Songs for a New World (singing the duet “I’d Give it All for You”); A New Brain (Roger); a student-run production of Sorry, Wrong Number (Sargent Duffy/Man One); and How To Succeed in Business without Really Trying (ensemble). Ramsey, who is in his senior year at Walnut Hill, was recently seen on the Walnut Hill stage in the role of Barnette Lloyd in Crimes of the Heart. Ramsey has also played Phil in Almost, Maine at Weston Drama Workshop and taken part in three staged readings as a part of Weston Drama Workshop’s new “Fridays @ 3” program.
