CONTACT HIGH: A NEW MUSICAL Announces Full Cast Including Johnny Rabe

Performers from A CHRISTMAS STORY, FRANKENSTEIN, and more complete the cast of CONTACT HIGH: A NEW MUSICAL

Johnny Rabe, original Ralphie in Broadway's A Christmas Story, joins the cast for CONTACT HIGH: A NEW MUSICAL. The production also stars Gabriella Marzetta (Frankenstein) as Jean Simon and Kyle Reid Hass as Hayley Walter Keys. The rest of the cast includes Laura Thoresen, Jeremy Swanton, Dana Norris, Iyana Colby, Keith Mankowski, Erika Reyes, Nathaniel Peart, Christopher Cherry, and Abbey Bjork.

After a successful Chicagoland try out, Kyle Reid Hass and Jeremy Swanton's CONTACT HIGH: A NEW MUSICAL will make its NYC debut at Theater 511 this summer. Previews begin August 15th with an opening night set for August 17th. The run is scheduled through September 7th.

CONTACT HIGH tells the story of the unlikely friendship between Jean Simon - a drug dealer and recovering heroin addict - and Haley Walter Keys - a misunderstood teen genius with a severe phobia of physical human contact. As Jean fights to get clean and break her ties with a dangerous drug cartel, she inspires Haley to overcome his fears.

Drawing inspiration from the teen angst musicals that got the creators through high school, and a testament to the resilience one can find in the hope of a better tomorrow, CONTACT HIGH is a new rock musical for a new generation.

This production is directed by Kyle Reid Hass with musical direction by Emily Erickson. It features original choreography by Kyle Reid Hass and Dana Norris, with Lighting design by Andrew Garvis. Production Stage Management by Ellie Handel.
