Watch “Hairspray Live!” with Center Stage

CATEGORY: Broadway

Members of Center Stage, the young professionals group of Starlight Theatre, will come together during the holidays to watch NBC’s highly anticipated Hairspray Live!

All Center Stage members and Kansas City young professionals between the ages of 21 and 40 are invited to attend the Hairspray Live! Viewing Party. The fun begins at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7 at the Buffalo Room in Westport.

Based on the 2003 Tony Award®-winning hit Broadway musical, Hairspray Live! features timeless songs like “Good Morning Baltimore” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” as well as an all-star cast including Harvey Fierstein, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Kristin Chenoweth, Martin Short, Derek Hough and exciting newcomer Maddie Baillio as Tracy Turnblad.

All who attend are encouraged to join Center Stage in giving back to the community by supporting Giving the Basics, a local nonprofit that provides essential personal care items for people in need. Those who bring personal care items to donate will be entered in a raffle to win several prizes.

“NBC’s live musicals are always so fun to watch because you never know what could happen on live TV,” said Jenni Mann, chair of Center Stage. “However, we wanted this event to be more than just a fun excuse to get together, so we hope all attendees will bring items to donate to Giving the Basics, an organization that does so much for Kansas City.”

Doors open at 6 p.m., and the show begins at 7 p.m. Light appetizers are provided, and Center Stage members receive one free drink. Additional food and drinks can be ordered in the Buffalo Room; cash and credit are accepted.

Tickets for this event are free, but please RSVP to attend by Monday, Dec. 5. Click to RSVP.
