After countless hours of singing, dancing and acting over four days, The BOD Drama Department is proud to announce the cast for this spring’s highly anticipated musical comedy, Hairspray.
Nora Hurley is cast in the leading role of Tracey Turnblad. Henry Loran will play Edna Turnblad, Drew Downs will play teenage heartthrob Link Larkin, and Shavonne Rogers will perform the role of Motormouth Maybelle.
Taking place in 1962 Baltimore, Hairspray is a musical with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman and a book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan, based on the 1988 John Waters film Hairspray. The songs include 1960s-style dance music and “downtown” rhythm and blues. Hairspray is a social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960s. The musical’s original Broadway production opened on August 15, 2002 and won eight Tony Awards. In 2007, a film version of the musical was released starring John Travolta.
Hairspray opens Friday, April 24 and will perform three weekends, concluding Sunday, May 10. For a ticket order form, please go to the drama page on the school website.
