Coffee County Central High School proudly presents Hairspray!


The larger-than-life 60s musical about love and acceptance dances its way to the CCCHS stage!


You can’t stop the beat...and you won’t want to, when HAIRSPRAY dances its way into CCCHS this month!  Hairspray, winner of 8 TONY Awards including Best Musical, is a feel-good musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.


It's 1962 Baltimore, and the lovable teen Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one desire -- to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her 'do!


Featuring a cast of over 50 students, a live orchestra, and special guest Dr. Keith Cornelius as Edna Turnblad, this is a production you don’t want to miss!  


Production dates are 3/9-3/18,  Fridays & Saturdays @ 7, Sundays @ 2.  Tickets are $12 for adults, $9 for students and seniors.  You can reserve tickets by e-mailing, but all tickets are paid for at the door.


Music by Marc Shaiman

Lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman

Based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters
