Let's be honest, Zac Efron really set the bar high in the movie Hairspray.  Even though the movie premiered in 2007, the Broadway musical has been running since 2002.

And guess what you Theater geeks? Hairspray The Musical is making its way to Rockford in just a few days!  You know I will be there, along with my best friend Megan and 16-year-old Tracy Turnblad in 1960’s Baltimore.

(Don't forget your big dreams and big hair like Tracy!)

Broadway's Tony Award-Winning Musical Is Back!

I remember seeing Hairspray in theaters for the first time ever.  It was at Showplace 16 in Rockford, Illinois and every seat was filled with tween girls with all their moms just waiting to get a glimpse of Zac Efron on the big screen.

Yes, we all screamed when he made his appearance.  Don't expect anything less at the Musical coming to Rockford.  The Broadway cast is incredible and no doubt, it should be an amazing time!

It's definitely hard to resist getting up and dancing along to "You Can't Stop The Beat" or "Welcome to the 60's", that's why I am 100% picking an aisle seat when I buy my tickets - just in case my feet can't control themselves!

So, what are you waiting for?  Tickets are on sale now and I promise you will have a great time singing along to fan-favorites.

The show is taking place at the Rockford Coronado Performing Arts Center on Thursday, November 3rd at 7:30pm and they have a seat with your name on it!  See ya at the show!
