The Modesto Junior College Theater, Music and Dance Departments present the musical Hairspray on March 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24 at 7 p.m. and March 25 at 2 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Performing and Media Arts Center on East Campus, 435 College Avenue, Modesto.
The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, provides family-friendly fun that is piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance, 1960s-style dance music and tuneful songs.
It's 1962 in Baltimore, and lovable plus-size teenager 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!
