Last week the whole cast of Hairspray went to Silverstream Retreat to prepare our musical. Our days were full of rehearsals of singing, dancing and staging. It was tiring but it was well worth it. We finished the camp with our first full run through of the whole performance. Hunter Giltrap as Edna is one to watch out for. He will be in a fat suit and a wig for his role. Can’t wait to share what we’ve worked so hard on with an audience!
