Why see HAIRSPRAY? This show has a wonderful message and that’s one reason to come and see it. But there is nothing better than watching people do what they are passionate about. There is something so magical when a group of people comes together, from all different walks of life, to present a heart warming production. You should see HAIRSPRAY to experience the many smiles and beautiful faces on stage.
HAIRSPRAY is set in 1962 Baltimore Maryland, what can this story teach us today? HAIRSPRAY obviously addresses race issues and I wasn’t completely aware of many of the struggles that black people face today until I started to get to know many of my fellow, black cast mates. They have opened my eyes to racism that is still present today and HAIRSPRAY teaches a great message and reminds us all that it isn’t about new cars, blonde hair, or cool dance moves. It’s about the heart.
