Reefer Madness

On Friday night, M and I went and saw a musical comedy titled “Reefer Madness”.  What was it about? Probably best to let the description on the website do the work for me! 

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. You won't be able to resist the spoofy fun of Reefer Madness. The addictive and clever musical numbers range from big Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes like "Down at the Ol' Five and Dime" and the Vegas-style "Listen to Jesus, Jimmy," featuring J.C. Himself leading a chorus of showgirl angels. This dynamic show will go straight to your head!

We loved it! We didn’t really know what to expect but we found it really funny.  The tickets are $22 and it goes for just over 2 hours including an intermission in the middle. You can buy tickets here or just on the door like we did. It finishes on October 16th so if you are looking for something to do tonight or next weekend, head on down to Midland Arts Centre!
