Gooooood Morning Laguna Beach!

Laguna Playhouse announced their first show in their 2017-2018, and it’s a fun one! They’re kicking off their 97th season with the effervescent musical, HAIRSPRAY!

Hairspray is based off of the book by Thomas Meehan and Mark O’Donnell, featuring music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, musical direction by Michael Ferrara and directed and choreographed by Paula Hammons Sloan.

“We are opening our season with just the perfect show for a Laguna Beach Summer,” commented Laguna Playhouse Executive Director Ellen Richard.

It’s 1962 and Hairspray’s big, bold heroine Tracy Turnblad twists, ponys and mashed potatoes her way to Baltimore stardom, while fighting for integration on a local TV dance show. Winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, Hairspray knocks your bobby socks off with spectacular songs, energetic dancing, and an uplifting story for all ages!    

“We welcome Paula Hammons Sloan and the ‘nicest kids in town’ back to our stage for this nostalgic musical confection. Talent abounds on our stage this Summer!” added Artistic Director Ann E. Wareham.

Hairspray opens on Sunday, July 9 at 5:30pm and will run through Sunday, July 30, 2017 at the Laguna Playhouse, 606 Laguna Canyon Road in Laguna Beach.
