About the show:

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 addictive, clever musical numbers range from big Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes like “Down at the Ol’ Five and Dime” and the Vegas-style “Listen to Jesus, Jimmy,” featuring J.C. Himself leading a chorus of showgirl angels. Reefer Madness is a highly stylized and satirical political commentary that has fun lampooning everyone and everything.

The all-local cast includes Robert Alexander, Sophie Bardos, Joe Cardozo, Kaylin Cardozo, Lisa Dahlstrom, Grace Ferrante, Marilyn Olsen, Lindsay Protsko, Elissa Ranney, and Jen Turner.

The all-local production staff includes Direction by Maggie Meath, Choreography by Emily Frangipane, Music Direction by Eli Newsom, Scenic Design by Kelley Wright, Sound Design by Chris Gensur. Brian Bish serves as Media Manager, and Kelly Benenati serves as Production Stage Manager. Fairfield Center Stage is led by Artistic Director Christy McIntosh-Newsom & Executive Producer Eli Newsom.
