An energy-fuelled rock opera based on the Grammy Award-winning album
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 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 familial responsibilities, and Johnny's attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship.
An energy-fuelled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to execute the story line.
While we are generally a pitch-led society, the opportunity came up to secure the rights for the musical American Idiot and be the first amateur group to perform it in London. The committee felt that this was a show our members would enjoy putting on and performing and therefore we are now looking for a team to make that happen.
Applications to be on the creative team are open until midnight on 25 July – find out how to pitch here.
