Green Day’s American Idiot

This Summer, step into the bold and enticing world of Green Day’s American Idiot with AWT’s Musical Bootcamp, a full-length concert reading of Green Day’s powerhouse album turned electric-rock musical rehearsed and performed in just two weeks!  If you’re looking for an intense musical experience, this one’s for you!
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.
Once the show is cast, our professional creative team will lead you and your cast-mates through an intensive rehearsal process after work and on the weekends teaching you the entire script, plus music, lyrics, and harmony to the entire show.  Finally, cast and band will present two performances of the show in concert (no sets, very minimal blocking – mostly just lots and lots of SINGING!) for an audience of family, friends and more!  This will be a whirlwind celebration of strong social messages and endless creative possibilities!

Vocals: Lots of harmony | Dance: Very minimal if at all


Below is the rehearsal and performance schedule for American Idiot! If you’re looking for an intensive musical experience, then this one is for you.  There are two casts, so keep in mind you will only be called for Cast 1’s or Cast 2’s rehearsals/performances. You will receive a detailed schedule that specifies exactly what dates and times you will be needed by the second rehearsal.

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Prior to Launch Day, participants will have the opportunity to disclose one rehearsal absence.  If participants miss any additional rehearsals beyond that, it is up to the discretion of the creative team whether or not a participant’s role must be reassigned.

PLEASE NOTE: This schedule is subject to change.
