Tara Roberds (Tracy Turnblad) is excited for the opportunity to perform as her dream role in Hairspray! Tara graduated from Butler University and teaches music at Cedar Elementary in Avon. She also has directed shows and musical theatre camps through Avon Schools, the Avon Education Foundation, Hendricks Civic Theatre, and Wayne Township Community Theatre.
Hairspray opened on Broadway in 2002, and has had numerous productions world-wide since that time. It won eight Tony Awards, including Best New Musical. Hairspray’s appeal-apart from its hilarious, endearing characters and it’s bouncy, 60’s-flavored tunes-lies in its ability to bring a “common touch” to the story. It remains a sweet, infinitely spirited, bubblegum-flavored confection in the best Broadway tradition, but at its core is a cry for understanding, and not only an acceptance of diversity, but a CELEBRATION of the differences that make Humankind the never-ending wonder that we are. And now I invite you to return with me to 1962, and Hairspray!
