Hairspray at Town Theatre
Tony Award-winning musical, Hairspray, at Town Theatre May 11-26, 2018
The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network… all without denting her ‘do! You can’t stop the beat in this big and bold musical about one girl’s inspiring dream to dance.
The show is directed by Cindy Flach, with music direction by Greg Boatwright and choreography by Heather Stokes. Costumes will be done by Janet Kile with technical design by Danny Harrington.
Tickets are $25 for Adults, $20 for Seniors 65+/Active Duty Military/Full-Time Students, and $15 for Youth 17 & under. They are available for purchase starting Friday, May 4 at towntheatre.com or by calling the box office at 803-799-2510 (M-F 12 noon-5pm).
Hairspray is generously sponsored by Lexington Medical Center, Sowell Gray Robinson, and Total Comfort Solutions.
