Gladstone Theatre in the Park to Open 27th Season with HAIRSPRAY, 7/3-6

Gladstone will open its 27th Season of Theatre in the Park with "Hairspray". The show opens Thursday, July 3rd, but will break for the Independence Day Celebration on Friday, July 4th and continue again on Saturday, July 5th and Sunday, July 6th. All performances begin at 8:30 p.m. and concessions will be provided by Gladstone Rotary.

Tracy Turnblad is obsessed with The Corny Collins Show and one of its dancers, Link Larkin. Though rejected by producer Belma Vom Tussle at auditions, when Tracey shows off some moves at the Sophomore Hop, Corny Collins gives her a place on the show. Tracey is soon launched to stardom, but can't stand that the show won't allow integration and does everything in her power to make it happen.

Hairspray, the book is by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman and the music is by Marc Shaiman.

Musical Numbers include: "Mama, I'm A Big Girl now", "I Can Hear The Bells", "It Takes Two", "Timeless To Me", "Without Love", "I know Where I've Been", "Hairspray", and "You Can't Stop The Beat".

Load up the family, blankets and lawn chairs and prepare for an evening of entertainment under the stars at the beautiful Oak Grove Park. You won't want to miss this one!
