ACT 1 is proud to present the final show of our 2016/2017 season, the Regional Premier of Reefer Madness the Musical! Reefer Madness the Musical is a musical satire of the 1936 cult film classic Reefer Madness that opened in Los Angeles in 1998. The book and lyrics were written by Kevin Murphy and the music by Dan Studney. This musical tells the tale of the Harper Affair, in which young Jimmy Harper finds his life of promise turn into a life of debauchery and murder thanks to the new drug menace marijuana. Along the way he receives help from his girlfriend Mary and Jesus himself, but always finds himself in the arms of the Reefer Man and the rest of the denizens of the Reefer Den. The show opened Off Broadway on Sept. 15, 2001. Jason Lewis Directs, Stephanie Jones-Benton Choreographs, and Rollie Mains Musically Directs this all star cast featuring Ben Gregory as the Lecturer, Cameron Gilliam as Jimmy Harper, Maggie Wood as Mary Lane, Trey Palmer as Jack Stone, LaDarra Jackel as Mae, Andy Riggs as Ralph and Nikki Berra as Sally.
Reefer Madness opens June 9 at the Darkhorse Theater and runs through the 24th. Thursday-Saturday shows begin at 7:30, and Sunday matinees at 2:30. Tickets are $20 and will be available to purchase Monday, May 29, at tickets.act1online.com or at the door. Reefer Madness is rated R due to adult themes and simulated drug use. We do not take reservations by phone.
