Reefer Madness: The Musical Presented by Extension-Korda’s Youth Players
July 4 @ 7:30 pm - July 6 @ 10:30 pm
Extension-Korda’s Youth Players, celebrating their 10th anniversary, presents Reefer Madness: The Musical, at Kordazone Theatre on June 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29 and July 4, 5, and 6, 2019.
Reefer Madness is a musical satire of the 1936 cult classic that opened in Los Angeles in 1998. The plot revolves around the melodramatic events that ensue when high school students are lured by pushers to try marijuana – from a hit and run accident, to manslaughter, suicide, attempted rape, and a descent into madness due to marijuana addition.
Extension-Korda chose this hilariously campy show because it fit perfectly in the midst of Canada’s recent marijuana legalization – what better way to celebrate the legalization than with a 1930s musical propaganda!
Extension-Korda is a youth program through Korda Artistic Productions that allows young adults take on production roles such as directing, producing, choreographing, and music directing, with a cast of all ages!
The cast involves some Extension-Korda veterans, along with some fresh new faces who got peer-pressured into this wacky-tabacky show. The show stars Mark Worsley as The Lecturer, Jeremy Burke as Jimmy Harper, Hope Forman as Mary Lane, Joey Wright as Jack, Elizabeth Dietrich as Mae Coleman, Gemma Cunial as Sally, Dalton Mugridge as Ralph, Kim Babb as Ms. Poppy, Amanda Gray as The Placard Girl, and Nicole Clark and Vienne Seto as the Ensemble.
