DAYTON — “Welcome To The 60s,” where Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, is on a mission to follow her dreams in ‘Hairspray,’ live on stage at the Victoria Theatre January 12 through 15, 2017.

A massive, energetic family comedy, the award-winning musical features show stopping production numbers including “You Can’t Stop The Beat” and I Know Where I’ve Been.”

More than 170 students from 62 local schools have been rehearsing for the production since mid-October, along with countless parent and community volunteers. Amongst Englewood’s rising young stars in the cast, crew and orchestra are Steven Greenwalt, NaTonya Driscoll, Jamey Paul and Kennedy Cook.
