On Thursday and Friday night the cast of South Pasadena Middle School’s Spring Musical performed a Broadway Showcase to preview their forthcoming production of HAIRSPRAY. The showcase concert featured selections from Hairspray along with popular tunes and monologues from other Broadway shows.
Highlights of the evening included Greased Lightning from Grease and You’ll Be Back from Hamilton. This preview was part of the new program being run by San Gabriel Valley Musical Theater. More students are participating in the musical this year than ever before including several dozen who are working behind the scenes as they learn set construction, lighting and costuming.
