Even if you’ve never used actual hairspray, you’d be crazy not to see Hairspray on stage in February at Rogers Little Theater. If you like music, dancing and laughing, you’ll love this show. It was a HUGE hit on Broadway. And we’ve got two tickets to give away to one Motherlode mama.
ABOUT THE SHOW: This show takes you to Baltimore in the 1960s, when change was in the air. Tracy Turnblad, the lovable plus-sized heroine, loves to dance and wins a spot on a local TV dance program called “The Corny Collins Show.” Overnight, she finds herself transformed from an outsider to a teen celebrity. (At right: That’s John Travolta, in drag, who played Tracy Turnblad’s mother in the movie adaptation of this musical!)
Zachary L. Denison, a New York City performer, is the guest choreographer for this production of Hairspray. Denison grew up performing at the Rogers Little Theater and graduated from Rogers High School. He attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York and has appeared in productions including the Broadway tour of Cats and The Music Man. He has also performed with numerous New York City dance companies.
The show will also feature a special performance by Emmy Award winner Brad Reed of Fox 24, who joins the cast as a TV reporter. Reed will record a voice-over to be used nightly for the show and will appear for an onstage performance on February 18th.
