Based on John Waters' 1988 film, Hairspray opens on the pleasantly plump, rebelliously coiffed heroine Tracy Turnblad daydreaming about fame on the dance floor in the soaring overture "Good Morning Baltimore." Along with her best friend, Penny Pingleton, Tracy wants nothing more than to dance on The Corny Collins Show with teenage heartthrob Link Larkin, and when open auditions are announced, the two entreat their mothers for a shot at the big time ("Mama, I'm a Big Girl Now"). Everything seems to be going Tracy's way when she overcomes, by sheer pluck, the producer's bias against girls of girth and becomes a trendsetter in her own right. But bigotries run deeper than dress sizes, and Tracy soon finds herself fighting the good fight for racial integration on TV. Hairspray debuted on Broadway in 2002 and won no less than eight Tony Awards the following year, including Best Musical and Best Use of Aerosol.
A delicious part of Fort Collins' cultural scene for nearly two decades, The Dinner Theatre at Midtown Arts Center comfortably seats up to 236 people within 45 feet of the stage. Tables fill seven tiers of seating, granting all patrons an unobstructed view of the 32-foot proscenium stage. Audience members can feast on entrees such as the chipotle-roasted pork tenderloin; the summer squash and mozzarella-laden angel-hair pasta; or the grilled d'anjou-pear salad, with additional options including prime rib or the catch of the day for an additional fee. For dessert, guests can pick from a variety of confections, from double-fudge layer cake to a Midtown Chocolate Sunday Sundae bubbling with hot fudge and dotted with candied pecans.
Midtown Arts Center
You never know who might be in the audience at Midtown Arts Center—it could be Broadway devotees taking in a performance of Sweeney Todd, families watching The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley, or comedy fans chuckling to Monty Python's Spamalot. The center is able to support such a diverse program thanks to a pair of theaters, a 200-seat auditorium that hosts kids' musical-theatre classes and a 236-seat dinner theater. In the latter, servers present gourmet meals from a menu that includes blueberry baked brie, braised pork shanks, and even creme brûlée. Before dinner, guests can hang out at the full bar and lobby, beautifully decorated spaces that perfectly complement a 200-seat ballroom that can be reserved for weddings or massive games of musical chairs.
