Music by Dan Studney
Lyrics by Kevin Murphy

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. Reefer Madness is a highly stylized and satirical political commentary.

Mature Themes
Presented through special arrangement with R&H Theatricals
