Scranton Cultural Center’s Summer Camp presents musical ‘Hairspray Jr.’ Aug. 4-5
From a press release:
The Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple’s 2017 Summer Program will present its production of “Hairspray Jr.” on the building’s historic Main Stage. The production will take place on Friday, Aug. 4 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 5 at 11 a.m. The show is based on the Broadway smash hit “Hairspray,” which was recently made into a live action production on NBC.
The production is approximately 60 minutes in length and features campers from the SCC’s SummerStage program, which provides programming for students in 5th through 12th grades.
It’s 1962, and spunky, plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has one big dream – to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When she finally gets her shot, she’s transformed from social outcast to sudden star. In balancing her newfound power with her desire for justice, Tracy fights to dethrone the reigning Miss Teen Hairspray, Amber von Tussle, and integrate a TV network in the process. With the help of her outsized mom, Edna, and guest DJ Motormouth Maybelle, the rhythm of Tracy’s new beat just might prove unstoppable.
The Scranton Cultural Center’s Summer Camp Program is presented by Toyota Scranton and sponsored by Wells Fargo, DePietro’s Pharmacy, and NEPA Pediatrics. It is supported by the Lackawanna County Arts and Culture Department and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
Doors will open one half-hour prior to curtain for each performance. A cash bar and light fare will be available for purchase.
