From the show:
CONTACT HIGH, an original new musical from Kyle Reid Hass and Jeremy Swanton, 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 Kyle and Jeremy 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.
