Remember the 1980’s when women’s bouffant hair was held up with about a can and a half of lacquer?
Spanaway Lake High School gives audiences a chance to relive the days of wrapping toilet paper around those enormous towers of hair before going to bed for the night, hoping the style would remain the same at daybreak.
The splashy musical “Hairspray” is all about a young girl who dreams of appearing on a popular television dance show. Tracy Turnblad has only one problem – she’s “pleasingly plump” and, since TV adds 10 pounds to a girl’s weight, Tracy has little to hope she will realize her dream.
Miraculously, against all odds, Tracy’s dream comes true, and she is transformed overnight from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program’s reigning princess and find true love – singing and dancing all the while – without mussing her hair? Only Miss Clairol Final Net Extra Hold knows for sure!
“Hairspray” is directed by Chris Serface, choreographed by Charles Simmons, Music Director is Nicholas Gorne. The fun-filled, singing and dancing story features more than 30 Spanaway Lake High School students
“Hairspray” plays Saturday, April 30 through Sunday, May 8, Thursday through Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. at Spanaway Lake High School, 1305 168th Street East, Spanaway, WA 98387
