The cast has been announced for the world premiere of punk rock girl, coming to the Argyle Theater on Long Island in January. Performances will run from January 20 to February 27, 2022, with an official opening on January 22.
punk rock girl is a new musical featuring popular songs written and made famous by female artists and girl groups such as Blondie, Pat Benatar, Avril Lavigne, Joan Jett, P!nk, Gwen Stefani, and many more. In partnership with Lively McCabe Entertainment, the show features a book and arrangements by Tony nominee Joe Iconis (be cooler), and arrangements and orchestrations by Rob Rokicki (The Lightning Thief). Jennifer Werner directs and choreographs, under the musical direction of Jennifer Peacock.
punk rock girl is described as follows: “Angela Quivers, 16, is a perfectionist who never takes risks and feels like there is no place where she belongs…until she met Proxi , a teenager who pulls him into a world of grungy guitars, shocking secrets, and loud, messy emotions. A musical about a young person who finds a community and creates his tribe, punk rock girl is a loud celebration of all that is raw and tattered; trashy and sincere; familiar and foreign.”
The cast includes Philippe Arroyo, Kayla Catan, Seth Eliser, Jaylan Evans, Kalonjee Gallimore, Ashley LaLonde, Lauren Marcus, Jackson Mattek, Jordan Leigh McCaskill, Kelly McIntyre, Natalie Powers, Mikaela Rada, Brooke Shapiro and Brad Weatherford.
Rounding out the creative team are director and associate choreographer Leonard Sullivan, set designer Nate Bertone, costume designer Jen Caprio, lighting designer John Salutz, sound designer Carlos Dias Jr and props designer Steven Velasquez.
