About the show

This musical tells the story of a high school where everyone is pop punk, it's always 2003, and there's never been anything cooler than shredding, pizza, and flipping off your lame-ass parents. More…

Derek, a young wannabe pop-punk frontman, wants nothing more than to become king of Pop Punk High and win Amanda Bunkface's angsty, straight-ironed love. It seems all but impossible for a loser like Derek, but when he finds a bong in his attic containing the ghost/genie of Avril Lavigne, his wildest dreams may become reality after all. 'Pop Punk High' features a score reminiscent of blink-182 and Sum 41, and a book full of obscene humor.

See it if you are a huge fan of Avril Lavigne, and pop punk music. The actual performers, (not opening act) are talented enough.

Also Please be aware that this venue does not allow outside beverages inclu... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Dizzying, Indulgent, Raunchy, Clever

See it if You remember this world and were a part of it. Smart music and an interesting space. The book was good and the band was stellar.

“Hilarious...Wildly comical and stridently raunchy...A spot-on laugh-out-loud farce of juvenile dreams, filled with the pop-culture references, language, aesthetics, and emo of the era...The ensemble of actors and musicians is across-the-board terrific, with powerhouse vocals and outrageously fun...
