A musical romantic comedy

 

The Legacy Theatre heats up the stage once again with the smash Broadway musical Hairspray. The popular American musical that opened on Broadway in 2002 has won eight Tony Awards, including one for best musical, and it continues to be one of the most widely presented musicals today. Based on a 1988 cult film by John Waters, Hairspray is set in 1962 Baltimore where Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one desire – to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream suddenly comes true, she is transformed from a social outcast to an overnight sensation and must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of the heartthrob and integrate a TV network, all without deflating her ’do. Athens High School senior Ainsley Chandler will play the lead and the production crew includes director Scott Richardson and music director Tyler Maul.
