another great, high-quality production by Encore! I only wish they would do their raffle at the end of the show so that people who bought raffle tix could stay and the rest of us could go! Also, there was a "pre-show" by an Encore dance troupe. Could either skip that or start it before the 2pm start time for the play so the play could start on time. The play's advertised start time was 2p and it was 10 minutes to 5p when we were finally out of there! That's a long time for small children even with an intermission. Otherwise - had a great time, kids and adults in our party loved the show.
It’s time to let your hair down and dance the night away! Hairspray, Broadway’s musical comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture is coming to the jewel of San Pedro, the Warner Grand Theatre.
It’s 1962 Baltimore and big-haired and boisterous teen Tracy Turnblad wins a spot on the local TV dance program, “The Corny Collins Show.” Overnight Tracy is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can an unconventional trendsetter win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a television show without denting her ‘do? Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.
“Hairspray is all about being who you are and not being afraid to stand up for what’s right, all the while pursuing your dreams,” says director Summer Cacciagioni. “It’s what we at Encore stand for every day and we’re so proud to be bringing it to the historic Warner Grand.” Don’t miss such crowd favorites as “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” “Good Morning, Baltimore, “Nicest Kids in Town” and “Without Love."
The production is directed by Summer Dey Cacciagioni with Musical direction by Mike Walker, choreography by Jennifer DiBenedetto, and set design by Marcelo Cacciagioni.
