Welcome back to the Sixties!
...and a rollicking good time of Hairspray!
The Tony Award winning Broadway musical is playing at the Little Theatre of Alexandria this summer. The run is sure to sell out!
But, Gadsby's Tavern Museum Society members and friends have the opportunity to attend a very special performance of Hairspray on
Tuesday, July 26!
Tickets are $25 per person and all proceeds support Gadsby's Tavern Museum.
A special pre-theatre reception with one of our famous Silent Auctions begins at 7:00 PM with curtain up at 8:00 pm!
You can't stop the music!
And why would you want to!
The 2002 Broadway musical was based on the 1988 John Waters film Hairspray.
The songs include 1960s-style dance music and downtown rhythm and blues. In 1962 Baltimore, plump teenager Tracy Turnblad's dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance program based on the real-life Buddy Deane Show. When Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight and then launches a campaign to integrate the show.
Hairspray may be the best fun you can have at a social commentary.
