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 have great nostalgia for 2000's punk music/culture. You enjoy excellent but brief character acting by the lead's parents.
Don't see it if You dislike "immersive" theatre where performers join a standing crowd. You are bored by in-jokes within in-jokes, including penis humor.
See it if you're passionate about experimental theater or love that pop/punk era of music.
Don't see it if You're looking for something to hold your attention. Once you get past the authentic-feeling club setting, there isn't much to this show
See it if You're in high school yourself or you're angling for a job on the Supreme Court.
Don't see it if you're to old to stand for four hours. Everything else I've seen at this venue has had cabaret tables. Just plywood floor for this one.
