STAGE TUBE: HAIRSPRAY Onstage at Westchester Broadway Theatre

Westchester Broadway Theatre presents HAIRSPRAY now through June 3, starring Erin McCracken as the unstoppable Tracy and Tad Wilson, donning his heels to play Edna Turnblad. Bruce Rebold is appearing as Wilbur, Kara Dombrowski as Amber, Ann Van Cleave as scheming villain, Velma Von Tussle, Pat McRoberts as Corny Collins, Stacie Gogo as Penny, Tripp Hampton as Link, Inga Ballard as Motormouth, Elgin Giles as Seaweed, and Sydni Beaudoin as Little Inez. Watch a video of highlights from the show below!

Based on the film written and directed by John Waters, Hairspray is a musically rockin' story which takes place in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, where the '50s are out and change is in the air. Loveable, plump teenager, Tracy Turnblad's dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance program. But how can she hold her own with the cool, sleek girls on Corny’s show? Tracy is encouraged by her oversized mother, joke-shop-owning father, and dorky friend Penny, and inspired by the dancing of the black kids at her school. When Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight. She competes for Miss Teenage Hairspray and the love of heartthrob Link Larkin, beats out the preening princess, Amber Von Tussle, and succeeds in integrating the TV show’s dance floor. Let the civil rights revolution begin!
