SecondStory Repertory is holding auditions for our June 2019 production of Reefer Madness. Directed by Isaiah Crowson with Music Direction by Tatiana Kruse and Choreography by Taylor Davis. Associate producer Beth Moursund.

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 show runs June 7-30, 2019 with a possible extension until July 7, 2019. Fridays, Saturdays at 8pm, Sunday matinees June 16, 23 and 30, 2019 at 2pm. Rehearsals begin April 28, 2019, and the schedule is as follows…
