JUNE IS BUSTIN’ OUT @ THE THEATRE PROJECT!

Theatre Project—through the presentation of a diverse array of original and experimental theatre, music and dance—connects the artists and audiences of Baltimore with a global community of performers. They seek to nurture those artists who are actively experimenting with new forms of expression and support both performers of international reputation and emerging local companies creating new work.

Inspired by vaudeville, silent film and absurd theater, Drew combines visual comedy and circus skills with dramatic situations to create highly theatrical shows that appeal to both adults and children. A site-specific show about an accident-prone conformist who goes to the theater and discovers he's actually a dramatic fool. It starts in the parking lot and ends up onstage. Customized to the theater where it's performed, the show celebrates the arts and the places where live performance happens. A co-production with Quest:Visual Theatre. Dramatic Fool's Website

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. Addictive and clever musical numbers range from big Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes like "Down at the Ol' Five and Dime" and the Vegas-style "Listen to Jesus, Jimmy," featuring J.C. Himself leading a chorus of showgirl angels. REEFER MADNESS is a highly stylized and satirical political commentary. Not appropriate for children and young teens
