Program Council: Hairspray


Welcome to the '60s!

Program Council and SMUST, the team behind 24 Hour Musical, are excited to bring you yet another #smusical! This year, we are working with Student Foundation to bring you Hairspray!  

The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs.
It's 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular "Corny Collins Show." When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network... all without denting her 'do!

This musical will be rehearsed over the course of 2 weeks, culminating in two performances during Family Weekend on Sunday, September 25th at 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM in the Bob Hope Theater in the Owens Arts Center.
