PITTSBURGH—Community College of Allegheny County South Campus Theatre will present the multiple Tony-award winning musical comedy, Hairspray, July 25, 26 and 31 and August 1 and 2 at 8:00 p.m. in the campus theater. A matinee show will be offered at 2:00 p.m. on July 27. Featuring a cast of more than 50 performers, the production is being directed by JR Hall with choreography by Mindy Rossi-Stabler.

Based on the 1988 John Waters film of the same name, Hairspray follows the story of overweight teenager Tracy Turnblad in her quest to dance on a popular local TV dance show. From her initial audition, to landing a role on the show and becoming an overnight sensation, to using her celebrity to champion a cause to diversify the show’s talent, Hairspray expertly blends the sweet, joyful spirit of youthful ambition with a powerful social commentary on segregation and other injustices of 1960s America.

Admission to the show is $10.00. For more information, call 412.469.6219. The CCAC South Campus Theatre is located at 1750 Clairton Road in West Mifflin, Pa., 15122.
