Sacred Heart's Glyndon Area Players continues its production of hit Broadway show Hairspray this weekend as it finishes its two-week run.
Directed by Homero Bayarena, president of the Glyndon Area Players, Hairspray was the obvious selection for the board.
"Hairspray has been a show that we have wanted to do for many years," said Assistant Direction Teresa Ertel. She added that the musical's Baltimore setting contributed to its popularity among the board.
Hairspray is based on the 1998 film by John Waters and serves as a social commentary on American society in the 1960s.
With half of the performances completed, Ertel said the show has exceeded her expectations. Last week, the Glyndon Area Players broke their attendance record.
"In terms of the talent, during auditions we knew right away that the talent that came out for the show was just unlike anything we had seen before," said Ertel.
Sacred Heart's Glyndon Area Players, founded in 1998, aims to be a creative outlet to showcase the talent of Glyndon, Reisterstown and the surrounding Maryland communities.
"We have cut no corners on set, on talent, on dancing and choreography. It's just such a high-energy, fun piece of local material," said Ertel.
Glyndon Area Players' production of Hairspray continues its run from Friday, August 17, through Sunday, August 19, at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission will cost $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and $8 for children under 12. All performances are at .
