Reefer Madness! The Musical 4-20 Staged Reading
One performance. Audience participation. Total madness.

It's that time of year again! The Brown Paper Box Co. is thrilled to announce the second-annual performance of REEFER MADNESS! THE MUSICAL on 4/20! This year, we're switching things up by presenting it as a late-night staged reading with audience participation! It'll be a night of revelry you won't want to miss. And if audiences can't revel on 4/20, well, when can they?

Inspired by the original 1936 film of the same name and based on their four-time BroadwayWorld.com Award-nominated 2010 sold-out hit, 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. Wrought with punchy musical numbers and biting political commentary, REEFER MADNESS! THE MUSICAL is a hilarious and highly stylized satirical spoof. Set at a 1936 PTA meeting, the show-within-a-show's Lecturer uses scare tactics, song, dance, and a little heavenly intervention to band his audience against a leafy green assassin - "the real public enemy #1."

The cast includes Zev Steinberg* (The Lecturer); Justin Kilduff (Jimmy Harper); Anna Schutz* (Mary Lane); Ashley Klingler (Mae); David Geinosky (Jack Stone); Michael Gardner (Ralph Wiley); Jillian Weingart (Sally); and features Patrick Butterfield*, Megan Ensley, Katherine Glavin, Michelle Kritselis*, Nick Shoda, Daniel Spagnuolo, and Katie Colby* on piano.

This production staff includes: M. William Panek* (Director); Katie Colby* (Musical Direction); Ian Anthony* (Props Master); Michelle Kritselis* (Dramaturg); and Charlie Sheets* (Poster Designer).
