The Encinal High Drama Department is currently presenting the mega opus extravaganza: Hairspray.
Based on the 1988 John Waters film of the same name, this musical is ostensibly centered on 1960s-style dance music and “downtown” rhythm and blues; but don’t be fooled.
The music and dancing takes place on the “Corny Collins Show,” a diminutive version of “American Bandstand,” but with an audience of thousands, not the millions that Dick Clark enjoyed.
We convey the Alameda experience, both past and present, through an informative, financially viable community newspaper, in print and online.
