Olympia High School's Titan Theatre had its audience in stitches during its production of "Hairspray."
This fantastically fun musical, winner of eight 2003 Tony Awards including Best Musical, is currently enjoying record-breaking success.
In "Hairspray," it's 1962, the '50s are out, and change is in the air. Baltimore's Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion—to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show" and, overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a plus-size trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a television show without denting her 'do?
There are several more chances to catch Olympia's production — at 7 p.m. Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18, and a matinee at 1 p.m., Saturday, April 18, at Olympia High School auditorium, 4301 S. Apopka Vineland Road. Orlando. Tickets are available at the door 30 minutes before showtimes and are $10. OCPS faculty and staff admitted free with valid OCPS I.D.
