Green Day's AMERICAN IDIOT Announced as Weathervane Theatre's 2020 Intern Mainstage Production
Weathervane Theatre, a professional, award-winning, equity theatre in Whitefield, NH, is proud to announce the Weathervane Theatre's Mainstage intern production for Season 55 - Green Day's American Idiot.
Nationally recognized, the Weathervane Intern Program is a highly competitive program. Comprised of a dozen performers selected from a nationwide search, these early career professionals represent some of the nation's top musical theatre training programs. Led by Marisa Kirby, the intern company also comprises the Patchwork Players, presenting a season of 4 musicals for audiences of all ages. While the interns are known for their family friendly fare on Friday mornings and on tour throughout the North Country, please note that American Idiot contains strong language and adult themes and is for mature audiences only.
Based on Green Day's 2004 Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum c oncept album of the same name, this electric-rock musical of youthful disillusion boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. Inspired by contemporary media, American Idiot's politically charged narrative is a voyage of discovery for three bored teens who struggle to find themselves in a post-9/11 world that's gone haywire. A social commentary on today's media and political arenas, this Tony Award-winning musical about finding one's way and identity is as timely as it is timeless.
American Idiot will open in mid-July. Casting and additional creative team information will be announced soon. Visit weathervanetheatre.org to learn more about the Weathervane Theatre Intern Program.
