Two years ago, the Hamilton High School Choral Department presented Les Miserables as its every-other-year musical production.

This year, when director Peggy Leonardi Bucheit discussed possible plays with the students, they said they wanted something fun and light. They decided to perform “Hairspray.”

It was a John Waters movie first, and then was turned into a Broadway musical, winning several awards. The plot is all about political correctness in the 1960s – with a lighthearted look at race and gender issues. The production is jam-packed with music and dance numbers.

At last Friday’s “Event Show” on KLYQ Radio, cast members said they were really enjoying rehearsals and couldn’t wait to get an audience. That will happen March 14, 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. and March 17 at 2 p.m. at the Hamilton High School Performing Arts Center.

Architect Dave Schlechten, veteran of many Hamilton Players’ sets, designed and oversaw construction of the over 13 large moving pieces. A huge cast includes not one or two lead singers, but 10 solos. Bucheit is the musical director and Stephanie Light is the dance coach.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. They are on sale at Mountain Music, the Music Box and Hamilton High School office.
