Center Theatre at the MJCCA Presents Hairspray From December 9 - 19, 2010

Center Theatre at the MJCCA will present the hit musical, Hairspray, directed by Dina Shadwell. Running from December 9 – 19, 2010, the production will take place in Center Theatre’s Morris and Rae Frank Theatre (located at the MJCCA, 5342 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody.)

Winner of multiple awards, including the 2003 Tony for Best Musical and the Lawrence Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Hairspray sweeps us away to 1960's Baltimore, where the 50's are out – and change is in the air. Loveable plus-sized 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?

 Based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters, with book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, music by Marc Shaiman, and lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman. Hairspray is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
