Texas High School’s Little Theatre Company will present “Hairspray,” the Broadway Musical, on Saturday and Sunday, December 4 & 5 in the Sullivan Performing Arts Center and John Thomas Theatre.
Based on the 1988 John Waters film, the songs include 1960’s-style dance music and “downtown” rhythm and blues. The setting is 1962 Baltimore, Maryland and teenager Tracy Turnblad’s dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance program based on the real-life Buddy Deane Show. When Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight. She then launches a campaign to integrate the show. Hairspray is a social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960’s.
Performances will be at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 4 and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 5. Tickets are $10 and will be available for purchase at the door.
