'Hairspray' Opens In Potsdam


It has been 18 years since Music Theater North closed its doors in Potsdam.

But the curtain is rising again thanks to a new summer musical theater being sponsored by Community Performance Series.
A group of high school students is joining professional cast members from New York City to stage the Broadway musical "Hairspray" this week at SUNY Potsdam's Snell Music Theater. 

We caught up with some members during a rehearsal for Tuesday's opening performance at 7:30 p.m.

The high energy performance represents has taken months to prepare for.

"It is non-stop rock and roll," said director Donna Drake.
Hairspray performances will take place nightly at 7:30 p.m. through Saturday with a special Saturday matinee at 2 p.m.
