Apollo kicks of new season with 'Hairspray'
The Apollo Civic Theatre, 128 E. Martin St., Martinsburg, WV, kicks off its 2012-13 season with the musical "Hairspray."
It's 1962 in Baltimore and the lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire - to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network -- all without denting her 'do!
Performances are Sept. 7-9 and 14-16. Curtain time is 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2:30 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are available at the door, or, for reserved seating, call 304-263-6766. Tickets are also available online at www.apollo-theatre.org.
