Don't miss the Texoma debut of the big, fat production of Hairspray!
It is very difficult to get the rights to this show. Wichita Theatre is one of only a handful of theatres around the country that has been able to obtain the licensing rights. For that reason, we had people come from as far away as Kansas City to audition.
This all-star cast features Emily Clements (Tracy), Jeremy Motley (Edna), Abigail Clements (Amber), Whitney Longcrier (Velma), Sydney Frank (Penny), Nancy Brasfield (Prudy), Jonathan Barnes (Link), Michael Sherry (Corny), along with Ann Arnold from KFDX and Little Meg from NIN as singing/dancing prisoners. All of these performers are highly sought after by directors for their extensive stage experience and loved by audiences throughout Texoma.
Hairspray features a dozen black actors/singers/dancers in starring and supporting roles...such as Mineasa Nesbit (playing Motormouth Maybelle) who is the choir teacher at Hirschi, Jeremy Saxton (playing Seaweed) who is a dance instructor for Dance, Etc. in Wichita Falls and Eddie Randle (playing Gilbert) from KFDX.
In short, this is the largest, most anticipated, most requested modern production ever launched by The Wichita Theatre and we are so proud of our cast and crew on this one. This will be THE show to see for our 103rd Anniversary Season during 2011.
