"Hairspray" the Musical

The Byron Civic Theatre kicks off its 19th season with the comedy "Hairspray" this weekend, August 2, 3 and 4.  Set in Baltimore, it is 1962 and plump teenager Tracy Turnblad's dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance program.  When Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight.
