You Can't Stop the Beat With Hairspray at Village Theatre

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
Village Theatre is closing out their season with an all-new stage production of the Broadway hit musical, Hairspray. Tracy Turnblad is a big girl with big hair and an even bigger dream: to dance her way onto national TV, dethrone the reigning teen queen, win the affections of the local heartthrob, and integrate a TV network… all without denting her ‘do! The Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning Best Musical teach us to look past skin color and size in the fight for equal rights. “What excites me about this show,” says co-director Timothy McCuen Piggee, “is that we get to tell stories that humanize in a world that constantly works to dehumanize. This play is really clever because it offers the opportunity to examine issues like racism, sizeism, homophobia, and bias. This show is thoughtful and courageous and I’m excited to bring it to life with such a strong team of individuals.”
Hairspray will be the last show for co-director Steve Tomkins as Village Theatre’s artistic director. “I’ve been ready and excited for this day for a long time. Hairspray is one of the funniest and most delightful musicals ever. As we’ve been working, we’ve discovered all the depth and layers involved in this show. It takes place in the 1960s, but the message is relevant and perfect for today.” After 25 years of dedicated leadership, Tomkins announced his plans to retire last October. With the Opening of Hairspray, Tomkins has directed 64 Mainstage productions, many of which he also choreographed, and helped to propel Village Theatre forward by ensuring that programming is accessible and appealing to audiences from all walks of life. Together with Executive Producer Robb Hunt, Tomkins has helped cultivate the organization into the largest fully producing theatre in the Pacific Northwest, with five buildings in two cities, 20,000 Season Ticket holders, and an annual operating budget of $13.2 million.
Hairspray is onstage at Everett Performing Arts Center from July 6 – 29, 2018. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the website at
