Hairspray Musical at Moorpark College

Manifest as a social commentary on egalitarian race relations, and based on the 1988 John Waters film, “Hairspray” the musical opened in 2002 before subsequently dominating the Tony Awards in 2003. Another film followed in 2007, and, since then, “Hairspray” productions have toured different parts of the world. Now, Moorpark College, ranked as one of the best community colleges in the country, aims to bedazzle and put on the highest-caliber attraction in possibly the institution’s history starting on March 3rd through the 20th.

 

“This is by far the biggest show…and the budget [for it] is bigger than any other to date. We have 200 students working on stage and backstage and 45 cast members in more than 100 costumes,” reveals the esteemed director of the production, John Loprieno.

 

The coming-soon extravaganza also has the reputable dance choreographer, Beth Megill, whose dance direction and vision will bode exceedingly well for the final product.

 

The outfits in particular are destined to be delightful in the era of the rollicking 1960s, thanks in large part to costume designer and professor Haleh Risdana, who, according to Loprieno, has supervised more than 60 attire pieces.

 

The cast and crew are hopeful that those who see the show will not only have a superb time, but be positively affected.

 

*Showtimes for “Hairspray” at Moorpark College are the following: March 3-5, 10-12, 17-19 at 8 p.m. and March 6, 13, 20 at 2 p.m.

 

*Prices are $15 for adults and $10 for students, seniors, and children. Tickets can be purchased at  MoorparkCollege.edu/PAC
