Photo Flash: First Look at Cape Rep Theatre's HAIRSPRAY

Cape Rep Theatre presents the Tony Award winning Broadway musical Hairspray, book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman; based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters, August 3rd thru September 3rd, 2016. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Big boned and big hearted Tracy Turnblad doesn't fit with the 'in' crowd of her 1960s Baltimore high school and dreams of being a dancer on the local TV teenage dance program. So, do her African American classmates. Friendship and love grow from breaking through the barriers for both in this heartwarming, story set to a rousing 1960's dance style rhythm and blues score. Winner of eight Tony Awards, Hairspray's message of acceptance and love resonates as much today as ever.

Directed by Scott Ripley the company features Kate Ryan, making her Cape Rep debut in the role of Tracy Turnblad, supported by a stellar cast of Cape Rep favorites including Jared Hagan as Edna Turnblad , Chelsey Jo Ristaino as Amber Von Tussle, Marie Becklo as Velma Von Tussle and Nick Nudler as Link Larkin, with newcomers Shinnerrie Jackson as Motormouth Maybelle, John Mooney as Wilbur Turnblad, Brandon Curry as Seaweed J. Stubbs, Matthew Elliott as Corny Collins, Annabelle Shea as Penny Pingleton and Stephanie Sequeira as Little Inez and an incredible ensemble of Lindsey Erin Agnes, IsaBelle Archer, Lephate Cunningham III, Jeffrey Kelly, Madison Mayer, Wil Moser, AaRon Roberts and Essence Williams.
