'Hairspray:' You can’t stop the beat

The Sixties were a time of revolution that brought us JFK's presidency, Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, controversy in Vietnam, and great music. The Broadway hit, "Hairspray," is a fun, musical social commentary on the American 60s. The Averitt Junior STARS production will demonstrate that even today, we can't "stop the beat." "Hairspray" will be performed in the Emma Kelly Theater by the Averitt STARS on July 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and July 24 at 2 p.m.
