Green Day’s American Idiot

Presented by MSU Department of Theatre

Pasant Theatre

Music by Green Day

Lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong

Book by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer

Directed and Choreographed by Brad Willcuts

Musical Direction by Dave Wendelberger

A rallying cry for 21st century American youth, this Rock Opera examines the boundaries and diverging voices of love and rage, patriotism and anarchy and the personal vs. the political.  This Tony award-winning musical with Grammy Award winning music explodes onto the stage as a high-octane exploration of what it means to be young and different in suburban America.
