Feb 20, 2015 02:04PM ● By Kim Shemwell
Daniel Tomlinson stars as Wilbur Turnblad and Adam Cannon as his wife Edna in Draper Historic Theatre’s production of “Hairspray,” based on the popular Broadway musical, to be held March 13, 14, 16, 20, 21, 23, 27 and 28 at 12366 South 900 East. Directed by David Beach and choreographed by Ashley Radar Ramsey, the show takes you back to the 1960s as their daughter Tracy Turnblad becomes a controversial sensation for publicly standing up for racial integration. “It’s such a beautiful and poignant show,” said Beach, who is directing this show as his senior project for a theater performance degree at UVU. “It’s a timeless piece—so relevant and emotional. It teaches kids to stand up for what they believe is right.” Performances will be held at 7 p.m. nightly with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday. DHT is seeking sponsors for this show in order to provide adequate sets and costumes. To find out more about becoming a sponsor and to purchase tickets, go to (tickets range in price from $7-11).
