About the Show
The two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical Green Day’s American Idiot, based on the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before. This high-octane show includes every song from Green Day’s album, American Idiot, as well as several songs from its follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.
Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend to familial responsibilities, and Johnny’s attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day’s groundbreaking album to execute the story line.
Three (3) female roles available.
|Whatsername||Female, age 20 to 30 - A girl in the city who falls for Johnny, a rebellious activist who is willing to follow Johnny to the ends of the earth but fights to have him embrace their authentic relationship rather than pursue his addiction. Strong voice/belt and strong dance ability.|
|Ensemble Women (2)||We are looking to fill two ensemble women roles. One of the reasons this show is so successful is its ability to make everyone onstage an important part of the story. The ensemble is onstage most of the show. Strong voice and dance ability.|
Dance rehearsals will start in June and music/staging rehearsals will begin in July. The rehearsals will be sporadic in the start and pick up as we get closer to show time. All cast members will learn how to play guitar for “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life).”
