Attention 4th - 12th Grade Teachers! Would you like to bring your class to our Spring 2017 Performance of:
Dear KHSPAC Supporters,
We are pleased to announce KHSPAC’s Spring Production of the Tony-Award Winning Musical, Hairspray
You can't stop the beat in this big and bold musical about one girl's inspiring dream to dance. The 1950's 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! Synopsis via MTI.com
Hairspray tackles big themes like body-shaming and the main plot centers around racial segregation. The story takes place during the heart of the Civil Rights movement. Our show opens at the end of Black History Month (February), making it timely and relevant for Social Studies classes.
