'Hairspray' tickets now on sale for the 39th season of Summerset Theatre
6/4/2012

FREEPORT�The Highland Community College Fine Arts Department and Summerset Theatre XXXIX proudly present �Hairspray,� the Broadway musical, directed by Dan Danielowski. Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. on July 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 and 14, in the Ferguson Fine Arts Theatre.

�Hairspray� will sweep audiences away to 1960's Baltimore, where the 1950's are out and change is in the air. The loveable heroine Tracy Turnblad, with her passion for dancing, wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show." Overnight she finds herself transformed from social outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program's reigning princess, racially integrate a television show, and find true love, all without mussing her hair?

Featuring a talented and energetic cast, �Hairspray� is jam-packed with family-friendly singing and dancing. Tickets can be purchased online at www.highland.edu or by contacting the Highland box office at 815.599.3718.
