The Joliet Drama Guild is announcing auditions for Reefer Madness! The Musical
A satire of the infamous 1936 cautionary film about two wholesome, all-American who have their lives destroyed by public enemy number one: Marijuana!
JIMMY HARPER- A wholesome, innocent, high school teenager who runs into trouble after he is lured into the dangerous world of reefer.
LECTURER- a severe authority figure who warns the audience of the perils of Reefer Madness. (Doubles as Goat-Man, Mr. Poppy, Irish Priest, Old Man, Radio Announcer, Ticket-Taker, Policeman, FDR)
MARY LANE- Jimmy's sweetheart, a naïve, virginal teenage girl.
JACK STONE- The handsome and ruthless proprietor of the Reefer Den, a 30's gangster movie-type.
MAE- An attractive, yet slightly haggard dame in her mid-30s, the hostess of the Reefer Den.
RALPH WILEY- a denizen of the Reefer Den, formally a fraternity man, his college days ended long ago due to his reefer habit.
SALLY- a sexy and seductive resident of the Reefer Den, she possesses the libidinous soul of Mae West combined with the rat-a-tat moxie of vintage Barbara Stanwyck.
PLACARD GIRL- throughout the play she reinforces the warnings of the Lecturer by holding large signs that clearly state the moral of what we've just seen.
ENSEMBLE- Mixed gender group to represent Reefer Zombies, Kids at the Five-and-Dime, Jungle Orgy dancers, Angels, and patriotic background chorus in the Star-Spangled finale.
The show also has several featured roles which may or may not be doubled with existing cast members.
