Green Day's American Idiot!

Presented by Jopuka Productions

The two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical is based on the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes rock musical's where they've never gone before.
Co-Directors: Rosie Ross and Joshua Maxwell
Musical Director: Ben Ross

American Idiot is a rock musical with music by Green Day and lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong. The musical is based on the 2004 concept album of the same name by Green Day, and it tells the story of three friends, Johnny, Will and Tunny, who are struggling to find meaning and purpose in their lives in the post-9/11 America.

The musical follows the story of Johnny, who is stuck in a dead-end job and a dead-end relationship, and he escapes his problems by indulging in drugs and alcohol.
Will, on the other hand, joins the army to fight in the Middle East and Tunny becomes disillusioned with the direction his life is taking. The musical deals with themes of disillusionment, addiction, and the search for identity in a post-9/11 world.

The musical features a powerful and energetic rock score, including popular songs such as "American Idiot," "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," and "Holiday." The performances are lively and energetic, and the cast delivers strong performances.
The sets and costumes are fitting for the gritty and politically charged setting of the musical.

American Idiot is a powerful and thought-provoking musical that deals with heavy themes in a way that is accessible and relatable to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
The musical is set in a variety of locations including the city and the war-torn Middle East, and it's filled with memorable music, dance and powerful performances. The musical is a perfect blend of rock and theater that will leave the audience feeling entertained and inspired.
