UT's Roundabout Players present

Reefer Madness, the Musical

directed by Lindsay Tuggey
UT Lab Theatre, November 12-14

A smarmy lecturer arrives in a typical small town of the late ’30s to warn the populace of the dangers of the “evil weed,” bringing along a lurid propaganda film to dramatize his message. In broad, unsubtle, and hilarious strokes, the play-within-a-play (or should we say musical-within-a-musical), shows how even a squeaky-clean pair of high-schoolers named Mary Lane and Jimmy Harper can become hopeless dope addicts by succumbing to the lure of marijuana.

Will Jimmy and Mary be able to free themselves from the grip of the Reefer Den and the corrupt dealers who run it? Or will they be slowly sucked into the world of marijuana, which is known for being full of rape, murder, cannibalism, and infidelity? Come see this hilarious political and social satire that is sure to give you a high.

Director Lindsay Tuggey talks to the Paul de la Cerda about directing the show (click to view 2:30 min video posted by Daily Texan On-Line, November 6)
