Edinburgh University are thrilled to announce that we will be taking Green Day's hit musical 'American Idiot' to this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
American Idiot is a rock opera based on the famous 2004 concept album and furthers the themes of the album through the narrative of three disaffected young men who are attempting to escape their parents' suburban lifestyle. In their search for meaning they find love, addiction, pain and failure in this high octane, exciting musical!
We are now looking for a production team to help make this happen — AND WE WANT YOU! Footlights offers one of the biggest musical theatre platforms for students. This is a unique and exciting opportunity for anyone wishing to develop their repertoire, with a diverse cast who wish to be challenged in every aspect of performance.
