Reefer Madness!!! The Musical

Marshall J. Gardner Center For The Arts

There is a new menace sweeping the nation, ready to ensnare and seduce the youth and drag them down into a life of sin: REEFER MADNESS!

In this hilarious, over-the-top musical satire, the high school drama club, led by the gravely stern Lecturer, illustrates the perils of the “leafy green assassin.” They tell the story of Jimmy, a fine, upstanding, All-American boy whose life falls apart because of the evil reefer. Jimmy is a good kid, with a bright future ahead of him. He has a sweetheart whom he loves, the wholesome and sweet Mary Lane. But when Jimmy is tricked into taking his first puff of reefer, his life quickly spirals downward. He begins to neglect his family, his schoolwork, even Mary, in order to spend all his time smoking marijuana at the Reefer Den. His addiction leads him to debauchery, sin, and theft.

Reefer Madness is an irreverent musical parody of the classic 1930s instructional film full of camp, hilarity, mayhem, and  madness. Five Performances available to enjoy REEFER MADNESS the Musical!
