The Lake Worth Playhouse is thrilled to preview our 60th season with the sensational HAIRSPRAY, a musical that soars with fabulous music and choreography sure to leave you swinging like the 60's!
This Tony-Award Winning, critically acclaimed Broadway musical is loads of fun with its 1960's-style dance music, rhythm and blues, eccentric characters, and most importantly, style.
Hairspray sweeps you away to 1960's Baltimore where the 50's are out and change is in the air! Loveable plus-size heroine, Tracy, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on the local TV dance program. Overnight she finds herself transformed from an outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent somehow manage to vanquish the program's reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love all without mussing her hair?
With more than 30 actors in this production, Hairspray features many South Florida theatre and Lake Worth Playhouse favorites including: Ashley Rodriguez (Mimi, Rent) as Amber, John Costanzo (Muscnik, Little Shop of Horrors) as Edna, Nikki Bradley (Mama Morton, Chicago) as Motormouth, and Dominic Servidio (Dentist, Little Shop of Horrors & Rooster, Annie) as Link among many other frequent Playhouse faces.
Also featured is Fednike Nazistene (Dynamite). Fednike began acting as a child in The Playhouse's Outreach Program for underserved youth in the Lake Worth community. Through this outreach initiative, Fednike developed a love for theatre and the arts and is now returning to our stage as a seasoned and talented performer.
This fantastic show will be directed by Clayton Phillips, director of the sensational shows Chicago and The Music Man, and is the Production Manager at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre.
