Pit Auditions for American Idiot Announcement

Calling all instrumentalists! Summer has come and past… but now it is time for Pit Auditions! Come on down to American Idiot Pit Auditions on Saturday, December 3rd from 1:00-4:00PM!

Auditions will be held at the Livingston Theatre Building (31 Postal Plaza), which is down the street from the Quads bus stop on the Livingston campus. Auditions are open, so just show up at the Livingston Theatre Building any time during the above time frame and we’ll be sure to hear you.

NOTE: You must be a current Rutgers undergraduate student to audition.

The audition will consist of a prepared piece of your choosing, 2-3 minutes, which showcases your musical and/or technical abilities, as well as sight-reading from the American Idiot book for your instrument. Both of these are mandatory. Those auditioning on multiple instruments need only prepare a solo piece on one instrument, but must sight read on all instruments they are auditioning on.

Filled with the music of Green Day, American Idiot follows a young anti-hero, Johnny, the self-proclaimed “Jesus of Suburbia”, and his two buddies, Will and Tunny, as they attempt to break out of their mind-numbing, aimless suburban existence. After escaping to the city, Johnny finds himself embroiled in a passionate affair with a stunning and unpredictable young woman, and an even more passionate affair with hard drugs.Tunny finds a sense of purpose by enlisting in the Army, but is wounded in the line of duty, both physically and emotionally. Meanwhile, Will, who decided to remain in the suburbs with his newly pregnant girlfriend, becomes moored to his couch, hopeless and stuck. Each of the men struggles to find the balance between rage and love -- a conflict that defines their generation.

Musically Directed by Richard Daley & Alexander Minter
Assistant Music Director: Edward Looney
