“Reefer Madness: The Musical” is being performed at the College of Southern Nevada’s BackStage Theater in Las Vegas through October 4.
Created by the Atlas Theatre Ensemble, the two-act, two-hour play is a raucous musical comedy that takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana. A satirical, political commentary, the play also contains adult content that may be inappropriate for younger audiences.
Inspired by the 1936 documentary film of the same name, there’s a 15-member cast and a five-piece band, performing musical numbers that range in style from Broadway to swing to Las Vegas-chorus line.
Tickets are $15, $12 for students and seniors. For reservations, please call the CSN Box Office at 651-5483. The theater is located in the CSN Performing Arts Center at 3200 East Cheyenne Avenue, North Las Vegas.
