“Good Morning, Baltimore!”
Those words mean that the Good Company Players have time-traveled back to 1962 and the good old days of racial segregation on teenage dance shows in the musical Hairspray on stage at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater through May 19. What a joyous blast from the past it is!

One would expect a musical named after a beauty product to be silly and fluffy, and while the musical Hairspray is filled with a lot of fun, energy, and laughter, it also has an amazing message–this is why it is one of my favorite shows. Hairspray opened this past weekend at the Reedley Opera House, presented by the Reedley River City Theatre Co., and I must say they have definitely done this show justice!

If you enjoy musical theatre then you don’t want to miss the Kings Players production of 50 Years of Broadway, currently on stage at the Temple Theatre in Hanford. This show was put together in honor of the Kings Players 50th year of producing plays.

Hairspray opened at Good Company Players’ Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater this past weekend and my daughter and I had the pleasure of seeing it. When Hairspray was at Roger Rocka’s a year or two ago it was so popular that they not only extended it by a couple of weeks, but decided to bring it back again this season, and I for one am glad since I missed it last time.
