Theatre Alliance presents ‘Hairspray’
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 T.V. network, all without denting her ‘do! The show will be performed at Theatre Alliance and stars Jessie Stewart as Tracy Turnblad, John C Wilson as Link Larkin, and Gray Smith as Edna Turnblad.
