Humphreys School of Musical Theatre 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 TV network, all without denting her 'do.
Hairspray JR. will be performed on June 10-12 at 11 a.m., and Hairspray will be performed on June 12-13 at 8:15 p.m. Hairspray JR. is a 60-minute version of the show and is geared toward a younger audience.
