Zeitgeist will present Frank Wedekind's play in a new translation by Reinhold A. Mahler, adapted by Miller. Wedekind's original play, which is also the basis for the Tony Award winning musical by the same name, examines the lives of teenagers in provincial Germany as their sexual awakenings are repressed by the conservative society of their parents.
The teenage roles will be played by local teenagers, including Paul McCallion as Melchior, Rebecca Stevens as Wendla, Carlos Rojas as Moritz, as well as Amelia Estrada, Gabe Goodman, Cameron VanderWerf, and Talia Weingarten. The adult roles will be played by Jake Berger, Douglas Cochrane, Michael Steven Costello, Michelle Dowd, Ruby Fox, Sara Jones, Maria Mogavero, Bill Salem, and Chuck Schwager.
The production will feature costumes by Krystal Bly, sound by Walter Eduardo, lights by Chris Fournier, and sets by Miller.For more information, call 617-933-8600 or visit zeitgeiststage.com.
