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 Want some good old nostalgia. Want a funny show in a concert like atmosphere. Crazy funny characters even the minor ones (ie mom and dad).

Don't see it if Dislike standing for long periods of time. Not fond of profanity and crudeness. Don't want Avril Lavinge's soul to rest in peace.

Clever, Great singing, Funny, Loud, Amusing book

See it if you like raunch, enjoy an appealing cast & a clever book, and have a good set of earplugs.

Don't see it if standing up for 2 hours or seeing an eight foot long pink plush penis would bother you.

Also Arrived at 6 - stated start time of show. Immediately realized there w... Read more Read less

See it if If you love musicals with kids 'trying' to be alll punk rock

Don't see it if you really want to see something that has depth, good music, punk music, or if you're annoyed by actors having (eww) orange hair and glitter

Edgy, Dizzying, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You like a fun, high energy, youthful musical. It was very well sung and danced. The characters were very funny if somewhat stereotyped.

Don't see it if It was very loud! If you have sensitive ears this is not for you. Also they play fast and loose with “obscene” language.

Entertaining, Funny, Raunchy, Insipid, Quirky

See it if Loud rock musicals about the millennium generation would interest you. A club-like atmosphere would be fun for you.

Don't see it if Loud rock music with always irreverent and sometimes raunchy lyrics and subject matter would offend. Millenials are a turnoff.

Also I enjoyed the show. It was silly pointless fun. The music was very lou... Read more Read less

Immature, Loud, Clubby, Whiny, Hack

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

Don't see it if you are bothered by blinding flickering strobe lights that give off heat, a clubby venue vibe, and immature plot with frequent expletives.

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