‘Hairspray’ to be Staged at Alameda Town Centre Today

A group of Alameda kids will be performing Hairspray from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. today, Saturday, July 23, on the outdoor stage at Alameda Town Centre (formerly South Shore).

The group had been rehearsing for three shows at another location, but these plans fell through.

Today’s show will be performed on the shopping center’s stage in front of Zeytini Restaurant.

Organizers say the performers have spent four weeks rehearsing. Along with parents and other adults, the group also organized a sound system and purchased costumes at a thrift store to showcase the kids’ talent and hard work.

They would like to thank Loard’s Ice Cream Parlor and Alameda Town Centre South Shore Center for organizing and providing the location, Orange Hair Salon for hair styling, and all the parents, family and friends who have been sharing their time and talents to make the show happen.
