“American Idiot” is a musical based around Green Day’s 2004 concept album of the same name. Featuring epic tracks such as “Jesus of Suburbia,” “Holiday” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” it tells the story of three disillusioned suburban youths and their attempts to flee from their mundane lifestyle within America. The original production ran on Broadway in 2010, and this weekend, the Landis will host a series of performances of the show.

Three performances will take place this weekend at 8 p.m. Friday, April 30, and 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday, May 1. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at TheLandisTheater.com.

The Landis Theater is located at 830 E. Landis Ave. in Vineland.
