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 Silly quirky wacky fun with an enthusiastic cast that pops up left and right dancing and screaming 2003 pop punk style.
Don't see it if Highly raunchy jokes with plenty of screaming and energy. Truly off-off broadway value at best standing behind a bar. Undemanding storyline
See it if you like super high energy pop musicals about teen angst, loaded with hilarious sarcasm.
Don't see it if you prefer quiet and refined traditional musicals like Oklahoma. Also avoid if you don't get sarcastic humor.
