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. The perfect closer to Bay Area Musicals' fourth season!

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!

In addition to Mr. McCoy and Mr. Gallo, the creative team will include Cat Knight as Stage Manager, Andie Fanelli as Assistant Stage Manager, Lynn Grand as Set Designer, Brooke Jennings as Costume Designer, Eric Johnson as Lighting Designer, Anton Hedman as Sound Engineer, Clay David as Prop Designer, Jackie Dennis as Wig Designer, Richard Guiterez as Wardrobe Master and Stewart Lyle as Technical Director.

HAIRSPRAY runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission.
