'Hairspray' tickets now on sale for the 39th season of Summerset Theatre
6/4/2012

FREEPORTThe Highland Community College Fine Arts Department and Summerset Theatre XXXIX proudly present Hairspray, the Broadway musical, directed by Dan Danielowski. Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. on July 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 and 14, in the Ferguson Fine Arts Theatre.

Hairspray will sweep audiences away to 1960's Baltimore, where the 1950's are out and change is in the air. The loveable heroine Tracy Turnblad, with her passion for dancing, wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show." Overnight she finds herself transformed from social outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program's reigning princess, racially integrate a television show, and find true love, all without mussing her hair?

Featuring a talented and energetic cast, Hairspray is jam-packed with family-friendly singing and dancing. Tickets can be purchased online at www.highland.edu or by contacting the Highland box office at 815.599.3718.
