Directed by Tyler Reviglio

 

 

ABOUT 

Inspired by the original 1936 film of the same name, this raucous musical comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana, leading them on a hysterical downward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence. The over-the-top, campy story begins with a Lecturer informing the audience of the new drug menace, Marijuana. He tells the Harper Affair a story of a young high school student whose life is turned upside down by the "demon weed." The student, Jimmy, spends all of his time in the Reefer Den ignoring his family, school, and most importantly his girlfriend. Jimmy's sudden addiction even draws the interest of a Tom Jones-like portrayal of Jesus. He realizes the error of his ways too late.

You won't be able to resist the spoofy fun of REEFER MADNESS. The addictive and clever musical numbers range from big Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes like 'Down at the Ol' Five and Dime' and the Vegas-style 'Listen to Jesus, Jimmy,' featuring J.C. Himself leading a chorus of showgirl angels. This dynamic show will go straight to your head!

REEFER MADNESS is a highly stylized and satirical political commentary. It contains adult humor, religious parody, and drug use, as well as suggested violence and sexual explicitness. It therefore may be inappropriate for younger audiences.
