"Hairspray" tells high-energy story of love, stereotypes and acceptance

Posted: Updated:

"Hairspray" the musical is a high-energy story of love, teenagers, stereotypes and acceptance. Cardinals for the Appreciation of Musical Theatre performs their own version of the show this week featuring an all-student cast. But Spencer Scruggs, who plays Edna Turnblad, says their group is not made up only of theatre majors. Their eclectic cast draws from all over campus.

Jackie Provenzano becomes Tracy Turnblad for the show. Tracy is a large girl with big hair and a kind heart, has only one passion--to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show" and is quickly transformed into a teen celebrity. She then successfully sets out to vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of the super handsome Link Larkin, and racially integrate the television show.

Cast members include Hannah Boyle (Penny Pingleton), Adam Byrd (Seaweed), Katie Kiefer (Nicest kid), Oby Igwe (Dynamo), Wayne Hogue (Nicest kid), Alex Betts (Dynamo) and producer Sarah Clark.
