The Vernon Community Music School’s Lights of Broadway has announced that they have received the rights to stage Hairspray,  one of the most exciting and loved musical productions on Broadway.

“This hilarious, musically charged show became a household name several years ago when John Travolta played the role of Mrs. Turnblad on the big screen. This, along with a score that will leave audiences wanting to dance and sing, makes it a show that everyone will want to see,” said Charity Van Gameren, Lights of Broadway studio owner.

An acclaimed musical theatre company, Lights of Broadway is entering its 12th season of fully staged Broadway shows in Vernon.

Previous years have included sold-out performances of The Sound of Music, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and most recently, The Wizard of Oz.

“In order to bring this huge musical to the stage, Lights of Broadway has the largest cast to date. It is an exciting undertaking that is going to build into a fantastic show for the North Okanagan,” said Van Gameren.

Hairspray will take the stage at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre on May 10 and 11, 2013.
