HAIRSPRAY opens at Music Mountain Theatre in New Jersey
The 2003 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical features 1960s-style music and is based on the 1988 John Waters film. It’s 1962, and plump, big-haired teenager Tracy Turnblad dreams of dancing on the local teenage TV dance program. When she learns a few dance moves from her black friend Seaweed, her wish comes true and she becomes an instant local celebrity. Using her new-found fame, Tracy advocates for racial integration on the show – an uphill battle she has every intention of winning. Good Morning Baltimore, Welcome to the 60’s and You Can’t Stop the Beat are only a few of the award winning score.
The production features Lucy Fisher as Tracy, Matt Robertson as Link and Michael Moeller as Edna. Cast also includes Anya Hentz and Jill Palena as the Von Tussles, David Whiteman as Wilbur, Louis Palena as Corny Collins and introducing Suryi Williams as Little Inez.
Hairspray runs from November 3 through November 19. Show times are Friday and Saturday at 8:00 PM and Saturday and Sunday at 3:00 PM. Seat at the new theatre are reserved and can be purchased online at www.musicmountaintheatre.org or call the box office at 609 397 3337.
