New Albany Riverstage Productions are back this weekend with their latest show, Hairspray!
Hairspray tells the story of teenager Tracy Turnblad and her quest to be on the Corny Collins show. When Tracy gets the opportunity to audition to dance on the show, she quickly jumps on it - but this doesn't sit well with scheming dance queen Amber von Tussle, who plots with her mother Velma to remove Tracy from the show at all costs.
This is the third year at the Riverfront Amphitheater for New Albany Riverstage Productions, having shown Grease in 2015 and Seussical the Musical in 2014. This production is proudly presented by the Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County and the City of New Albany.
Director Alonzo Richmond is very excited about this year's show, and is encouraging everyone to come check out the buzz.
"We are blessed to have such a talented and dedicated group of young performers," stated Riverstage Productions Director Alonzo Richmond. "Each year, I'm amazed by the level of skill and professionalism that the young actors in our community possess, and we are very pleased with how the show has come together."
