The Young Actors Theatre recreated the Tony Award winning "Hairspray" the musical.
WCTV's very own blonde Julie Montanaro and Tallahassee City Commissioner Gil Ziffer lent their voices and rhythm to help raise money towards YAT's scholarship program
Tallahassee, Florida - June 9, 2011 -
Get swept away to 1960’s Baltimore, where the 50's are out -- and change is in the air. Loveable plus-size heroine, Tracy Turnblad, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show." Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program's reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair? Don’t miss this “must-see” hit, directed by Worth Williams – Amber Von Tussle in the First National Broadway Tour of this Tony Award Winning smash hit!
