The bubbly Technicolor musical Hairspray, which won the 2003 Tony Award for Best Musical, transforms the theater into swinging 1960s Baltimore. The musical adaptation of John Waters’s seminal cinematic bonbon, Hairspray tickles cowlicks and bowls over bouffants with its winsome tale of dancing queens, underdogs, and impenetrable ozone layers. Audiences will do the mashed potato in their seats as husky heroine Tracy Turnblad usurps snobbish beauty queens and battles segregation to become an unlikely teen sensation. With its entertaining buffet of romance, eye-popping sets, and irascible Marc Shaiman ditties, Hairspray fills the plates of theater fans with more nourishing laughs and caloric nostalgia than an evening of sharing french toast with Jerry Lewis.

A cast of talented Akron high-school students from around the area imbues the show with all the effervescence of authentic youth in this All-City Musical production. Though most of the performers are just embarking on their theatrical careers, Jon Bozeka has a head start: the Firestone High School student will be reprising the role of mega-matriarch Edna Turnblad from his school’s production last year.

The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures of the Akron Civic Theatre transport audiences to exotic lands. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
