Familiarity with the show and music will be helpful to auditioneers, but specific preparation is not required. Cuttings of the script and music will be provided for reading and informal testing at the auditions.
Reefer Madness is an outrageous tongue-in-cheek musical comedy adaptation of the classic 1936 anti-marijuana propaganda film of the same title. The raucous production follows 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 book is by Kevin Murphy and Dan Studney, music by Dan Studney, and lyrics by Kevin Murphy. Ryan Michael Decker, TWP artistic director, will direct.
A highly stylized and satirical political commentary, the show contains adult humor, religious parody, and drug use, as well as suggested violence and sexual explicitness.
Performances will be Thursday, July 17 at 7 p.m. (All Ages Show) and Saturday, July 19 at 10 p.m. (21+ Show) at Eronel Art & Music Venue, 285 Main St., Dubuque.
