Equinox Theatre Company Announces Auditions for
Reefer Madness, The “Hit” Musical
Book by Kevin Murphy and Dan Studney
Music by Dan Studney, Lyrics by Kevin Murphy
Directed and Choreographed by Colin Roybal
The 2010 Award-winning hit show is back and bigger than ever at The Bug Theatre!
Reefer Madness is inspired by the original 1938 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 down-ward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex, and violence. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this hilarious and outrageous show!
