Hairspray Load in Day

I call this: summer stock,theatre — Posted by KP @ 7:49 pm

I know I haven’t blogged much about Hairspray yet. Usually that means there are problems, but in this case it’s been going very well. Today we did a stumble-through of Act I, which was very exciting, and made our first serious attack on Act II by staging “Big Doll House.”

Today our set (from Wichita Music Theatre) arrived in two trucks, straight from its closing last night at Gateway Playhouse on Long Island. The tight turnaround between the two rentals has been a great concern for us, but so far so good. We have a lot of backup plans for things.

Just wanted to share some very early photos of the pastel megaliths now crowding our stage and shop.

And the back shop has zero floor space at this moment.
