HAIRSPRAY with Bobbie Eakes of "All My Children"
It's time to let your hair down and dance the night away! HAIRSPRAY, Broadway's musical comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture is coming to the Palm Canyon Theatre in Palm Springs, CA. It's HAIRSPRAY, live on stage, in living color! This fantastically fun musical is the winner of eight 2003 Tony Awards including Best Musical. The 2007 West End production of HAIRSPRAY was nominated for a record - breaking 11 Olivier Awards and nabbed four, including the top category Best New Musical, and also won Best New Musical in all of Britain's other top awards programs, including the Evening Standard, Critic's Circle, and Whatsonstage Awards. In HAIRSPRAY it's 1962—the '50s are out and change is in the air. Baltimore's Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion—to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program, The Corny Collins Show and, overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a plus-size trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television show without denting her 'do? Only in Hairspray! Welcome to the '60s! Palm Canyon Theatre’s HAIRSPRAY features BRIAN SCOTT a.k.a. "Jersey Shore" as Edna, BOBBIE EAKES from "All My Children" as Velma, DIVA DENISE CARTER as Motormouth Maybelle, BEN REECE as Corny Collins, SANDY REED as Link, CHLOE MARCOTTE as Penny, ALLEGRA ANGELO as Amber, TERRY HUBER as Wilbur and introducing STEPHANIE GARROBO as Tracy Turnblad.
