    Theater: Gateway Playhouse / 215 South Country Road, Bellport, Long Island, New York, 11713

    Synopsis: 

    Complete with groovy dancing, an array of colorful characters, and of course rocking mile-high do's, Hairspray is the story of Tracy Turnblad, a girl with dreams far bigger than her reflection, or hair. Although a musical comedy, the show has substance in its message reflecting the essential nature of friendship and equality. Gateway's production of Hairspray is a particularly authentic representation of this 60's mentality of unity and opportunity both on stage and off, not only because of the story and the message it conveys, but because the cast, living and working together for the entirety of the show's rehearsal and production period, is a true manifestation of the message the show so strongly upholds.
