Thursday, July 7 will be a special 'Sing-Along' performance. Come sing along with the cast as they perform the show.

Synopsis: Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men plan flee the constraints of the suburbs for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Will has to stay to attend to familial responsibilities, Tunny enters the armed forces, and Johnny's attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to execute the story line.

Everyone at Patio Playhouse is a volunteer, there are no salaries paid to our staff. Every penny of every dollar goes to support our facilities and the productions you see.

The actors range from professional opera singers to the cute little six year old that lives a block away. We don't try to be politically correct, promote any particular life style or push any envelopes. We do hope to make you laugh, cry and think.

Behind the scenes, there are opportunities galore for our volunteers to learn a new skill and experience how their efforts directly affect the excellence of the performance. Many people, while volunteering for Patio Playhouse, discovered, to their surprise, they loved and and had a knack for one or more of the myriad skills needed to produce a show. Some have gone on to rewarding careers in theatre and other performing arts.

We don't charge fees to participate either onstage or behind the scenes. We keep our prices affordable. We depend on your generosity to continue bringing you entertaining, educational and meaningful performances to enrich our community.
