MINNEAPOLIS - Minneapolis Musical Theatre's "Reefer Madness," the raucous musical comedy taking a tongue-in-cheek look at the perils of marijuana, is on stage now through Feb. 24 at Hennepin Theatre Trust's New Century Theatre (Street Level of City Center in downtown Minneapolis).
Directed by Steven Meerdink, MMT's artistic director, it is the first production in the new partnership between Hennepin Theatre Trust and Minneapolis Musical Theatre.
This dynamic, comic book style production stars local actors Kurt Bender as Jimmy Harper, Maggie Mae Dale as Mae Coleman, Garrick Dietze as The Lecturer, Keith Hovis as Ralph Wiley, Emily Jabas as Sally, Daniel Ray Olson as Jack, Amanda Weis and Mary Lane.
Inspired by the original 1936 film, this satirical morality tale is a depiction of clean-cut kids lured into a hysterical downward spiral by the evil weed, jazz, sex and violence. Single tickets are on sale now.
