Reefer Madness The Musical Book by Kevin Murphy and Dan Studney, Music by Dan Studney, Lyrics by Kevin Murphy

Feet Don't Fail Me Now

Presented through special arrangement with R&H Theatricals

These talented hoofers make their Harford County debut with their unpredictable blend of hard-hitting tap, high-spirited humor, and finger-snapping tunes. Satisfying their "rhythmic appetite" on everything from sand to folding chairs, they tap their way from funk to beat-box to salsa – a truly "you have to see it to believe it" performance! rhythmiccircus.com

Inspired by the original 1936 film of the same name, this raucous musical comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana, leading them on a hysterical downward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence. Reefer Madness is a highly stylized and satirical political commentary.
