It’s time to let your hair down and dance the night away! Hairspray, Broadway’s musical comedy phenomenon is coming to when The Jonathan Law High School Drama Club Proudly Presents HAIRSPRAY the Musical March 16 and 17 at 7pm and March 18 at 3pm.
Be swept away to 1960s Baltimore in this fantastically fun international smash-hit musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter and romance — and enough deliriously tuneful songs to fill a nonstop platter party. It’s Hairspray, live on stage, in living color! .
In Hairspray it's 1962—the '50s are out and change is in the air. Baltimore's Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion—to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show" and, overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a plus-size trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television show without denting her 'do? Only in Hairspray! Welcome to the '60s!
Hairspray is based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters. It features a book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan. Hairspray features an original score by Academy Award-nominated Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
