Pump up the Volume

If you're a lover of catchy choruses and colorful costumes, get out of your house and into a seat at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts for the Broadway musical Hairspray on Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 7:30pm.

Set in the 1962, Hairspray follows Tracy Turnblad, a vivacious high-schooler who dreams of starring on local TV. As she tries to sing and dance her way into stardom, she also fights racial segregation in her town. "It's a really fun show for someone who has never experienced a live Broadway performance," says Marilyn Patrick, marketing coordinator at the Phillips Center. "It's something that's been so successful in the past."

Part of that success comes from raking up eight Tony Awards in 2003, including Best Musical, as well as its adaptation into a major motion picture in 2007, starring John Travolta and Queen Latifah. "The story is just so uplifting," Marilyn says.

The Phillips Center is located at 315 Hull Road. Tickets start at $34, and can be purchased online or at the Phillips Center box office.
