Santa Maria Civic Theatre Presents: Hairspray

August 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27

The Santa Maria Civic Theatre kicks off its 59th season with “Hairspray”, The Broadway Musical, based on the New Line Cinema Film written and directed by John Waters.

The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs.

It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network… all without denting her ‘do!

The Santa Maria Civic Theatre is located at 1660 McClelland Street in Santa Maria. Show times are Friday and Saturday Nights at 7:00pm, Sunday afternoons at 1:30pm. Tickets for musical productions are $20.00 and can be purchased at or at the door of the theatre. Ticket office opens half an hour prior to show time. Discounts for seniors, students and military with valid ID. Street parking is available. Contact the Santa Maria Civic Theatre at 805-922-4442, [email protected], or at
