Pop punk high


A New musical Experience.



In a world where it’s perennially 2003, and Pop Punk never went out of style, Derek’s life sucks. His parents don’t understand him, he’s the biggest loser in school, and the girl of his dreams, Amanda Bunkface, doesn’t know he’s alive. But everything changes when he finds the ghost-slash-genie of Avril Lavigne (who was murdered and replaced with a lookalike), who grants Derek three wishes to defeat his pop punk nemesis, Skeet, and win the girl of his dreams – but Derek is soon to find out that what you think makes you Pop Punk, often isn’t Pop Punk at all.


Pop Punk High is a celebration and a parody of all things early 2000’s, and the ethos and aesthetic that defined a generation, with an all-original, all-pop punk score. And it’s not just a musical – it’s an entire night out, a party, and a participatory event, coming to NYC for a limited run this fall at (le) poisson rouge.
