Circle Theatre presents REEFER MADNESS, directed by Matthew Gunnels, opening tonight, July 18, through August 26, 2012.  BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production photos below.
 
Reefer Madness takes the over-the-top morality tale of the 1936 film cult classic, and pushes it to The Edge of ridiculous. Innocent teen Jimmy is lured into the dangerous world of marijuana, a world full of insanity, promiscuity, recklessness and murder. 

The cast features Matthew Gunnels, Bobby Arnold, Julia Beck, Liz Bollar, Tommy Bullington, Landree Fleming, Jason Grimm, Kyle Kuhlman, Melody Latham, Eric Lindahl, Elissa Newcorn, Joshua A. Peterson, Gina Sparacino, Ryan Stajmiger, Neil Stratman, Stephanie Wohar.

The creatives include Matthew Gunnels, Director, Jon Landvick, Music Director, Brigitte Ditmars, Choreographer, Zev Steinberg, Fight Choreographer, Peter O'Neill, Scenic Designer, John Nasca, Costume Designer, Gary C Echelmeyer, Lighting Designer, Matt Gajowniczek, Sound Designer, Adele Powers, Stage Manager, Fernando Alvarez, Assistant Stage Manager, Nicole Malmquist, Associate Lighting Designer, and Anita Hoffman, Production Coordinator.

Celebrating its 27th season, Circle Theatre is an artist-based company and the proud recipient of over 40 Jeff Awards. Circle has produced multiple world premieres, including Rebecca Gilman’s The Glory of Living and The Crime of the Century, Jon Steinhagen’s The Analytical Engine, the Midwest premiere of Michael John LaChiusa’s The Wild Party, and the Chicago premieres of Marvin Hamlisch’s Sweet Smell of Success, Jeff Daniels’ Escanaba In Da Moonlight, Adam Rapp’s Stone Cold Dead Serious, and in our 2011-2012 season, When the Rain Stops Falling.
