Amarillo Little Theatre is very excited to present Hairspray the Broadway Musical as its final production of the 2015-16 season! Winner of the 2003 Tony Award for Best Musical, this fast paced, big and bright production features spectacular music and dance and the zany characters you know and love. This show promises to be an exhilarating, fun evening of theatre for the entire family.
It’s 1962, and plump, big-haired teenager Tracy Turnblad dreams of dancing on the local teenage TV dance program. When she learns a few dance moves from her black friend Seaweed, her wish comes true and she becomes an instant local celebrity. Using her new-found fame, Tracy advocates for racial integration on the show - an uphill battle she has every intention of winning.
ALT has assembled an incredible collection of talented performers for this production. It features Emma Elkins starring as Tracy. The remainder of the cast includes A’Dreonna Armstrong, Brandon Bellar, Tony Brazell, Ronnie Brockett, Gina Doss, Drew Grimes, Nikki Hawes, Kaycee Humphrey, Gracie Hurt, Taurus Jackson, Devlon Jones, Sean Jones, Kelsey Kilburn, Jered Lopez, Regan Mashburn, Cole Medley, Jonathan Mobley, Treva Oller, Chad Price, Laurenn Reynolds, David Robinson, Bryan Scott, Melissa Shafer, Pecos Shafer, Reagan Shafer, Tevae Shoels, Isabella Smith, Janecia Stevenson, Harrison Stringer, Ryan Sustaita, Bianka Torres, SaVante Wallace, Kaori Young, Isaac Youree and ZZ Wright.
