There are lots of exciting things going on with Hairspray Jerusalem right now. We are mostly done with staging Act One, though there is still lots of work to do. I was so happy to see that Good Morning Baltimore turned out to be exactly the type of number that I wanted. And another of the numbers in Act One is going to be so full of surprises that I can’t wait to hear the audience’s reactions – but telling you which one it is would ruin the surprise.
In any case, you shouldn’t care about how fun our rehearsals are or how much more work we have to do to get Hairspray ready. The news that you can get excited about is that we are finally able to announce our performance dates. Even better than that, we are proud to announce that Hairspray was accepted into the Jerusalem Festival Of Arts, so one of our performances will be part of the festival and performed at the beautiful Hirsch Theater at Bet Shmuel. The other six performances will be at the Masorati High School, where previous Encore Youth Productions have found a great home. So mark these dates on your calendar, since tickets will be on sale shortly and you don’t want to miss this show.
