Opening this weekend
Hairspray. Runs July 12 – 21. City Springs Theatre Company @ Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center. In 1962 in Baltimore, Tracy Turnblad dreams of dancing on the popular Corny Collins Show. Tracy fights against exclusion because of her size, and stands beside her friends who are fighting against exclusion based on race. In 2003, Hairspray won eight of its 13 Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, and has since toured the country and been adapted into a musical film. Hairspray is full of laughter, romance, and toe-tapping songs! Tickets and information on the City Springs Theatre Company website.
