Theatre: 'Hairspray' takes the stage in Milpitas
"Hairspray" delighted audiences by sweeping them away to 1960s Baltimore where the '50s are out and change is in the air. Loveable plus-size heroine Tracy Turnblad has a passion for dancing and wins a spot on the local TV dance program "The Corny Collins Show." Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program's reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair?
Center Stage Performing Arts presents "Hairspray" through August 3 at the Milpitas Community Center. Performances continue July 25 - 27 at 7 p.m. with additional matinee performances at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 27; Sunday, July 28 and Saturday, August 3 and a 7 p.m. performance Friday, August 2.
