“Hairspray” the musical, which opened April 1 at Pagosa Springs High School, has three more performances tonight, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m., with tickets for $10 available at the door.

This wonderful ’60s era musical rocks the auditorium with more than 25 song-and-dance numbers, a cast and crew of 60 and a live orchestra. Musicians include: Dan Burch, conductor; Venita Burch, piano; Heidi Tanner, violin 1; Skip Thomas, violin 2; Karen Harper, flute; Malinda Fultz, soprano sax, alto sax, tenor sax; Bill Gottschalk, soprano sax, alto sax, bari sax; Larry Elginer, trumpet; Billy Baughman, trombone; Carlos Padillo, guitar; James Kiker, bass; Jeff Heintzleman, drums; Diane Geraghty, percussion; and Jon Hudson, keyboard.

Veteran performer Johannah Laverty plays the lead role of Tracy Turnblad, while newcomer Mason Chronowski plays the ever-popular Link Larkin in his spectacular premier performance.

Step out into spring and over to the high school stage for an exciting and fun evening. “Hairspray” is a show for all ages. Please come on over and help support our young people as they sing and dance their hearts and “hair” out. We appreciate your support of the performing arts in our schools.
