SAN DIEGO MUSICAL THEATRE
San Diego, CA - Summer 2018
The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! HAIRSPRAY, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. It's 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular "Corny Collins Show." When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network... all without denting her 'do!
The show features a book by Thomas Meehan & Mark O'Donnell, music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by March Shaiman & Scott Wittman. J. Scott Lapp directs the production with musical direction by Don LeMaster and choreography by Jill Gorrie. The creative team includes scenic design by Mike Buckley, costume design by Janet Pitcher, lighting design by Michelle Miles, sound design by Kevin Anthenill and Wigs by Peter Herman. Stage management by Marie Jehelka and the show was produced by San Diego Musical Theatre.
