Cherry Valley-Springfield Central School did a production of Hairspray the musical this weekend. I made this cake and they auctioned it off Saturday night. The white faced gal with the blue hair and pink bow is what is pictured on the playbill. If you are familiar with the musical, you know that Ultra Clutch hairspray is the sponsor of the dance competition on the Corny Collins Show. For those of you who are not familiar with the musical, you should watch it! I once watched the original version and there were some songs and scenes cut from it in the more recent version, where John Travolta plays Tracy’s mom; so watch them both and decide which one you like best! In the musical, Tracy takes a stand against segregation and encourages those around her to stand with her. She is eventually successful in breaking out and breaking down the barriers on the Corny Collins Show, where she dances her way into everyone’s heart.
I took my girls to see the show this weekend, as they love musicals as much as I do! Jared Tracy, as Edna, made the show, in my ‘unbiased’ opinion! Hilarious! Congratulations on a job well done!
