and Scott Wittman
Book by Mark O'Donnell
and Thomas Meehan

Performances: July 11-27, 2014

The 1950's are out and change is in the air! HAIRSPRAY, winner of 8 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!

There will be preshow trailers from the same time period as Hairspray (1962 movies) starting 1/2 hour prior to the show. Don't miss these preshow trailers!

Set in mid-century Atlanta, Driving Miss daisy tells the story of an elderly Jewish matron, Daisy Werthan, and her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn. At first Daisy is none to happy about being forced to rely on a black man. But Hoke gradually wins her over, and during the 25-year span of the play the two develop a deep-rooted affection.

Alfred Uhry, the playwright, has created two outsiders who come to a mutual respect based on their independence, strength, and stubborn integrity.
