The Towle Theater is proud to present the third show in their 2022 season. Reefer Madness is a musical comedy by Kevin Murphy and Dan Studney and is directed by Towle Theater Managing Director, Jeff Casey with Musical Direction by Ron Attreau and Choreography by Colin Funk. Reefer Madness is sponsored by Calumet College of St. Joseph. The 2022 Season is sponsored by Leon Dombrowski and Seda Turan and Accucraft Imaging.
Reefer Madness is 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.
