Two "command performances" of Hairspray Feb. 26 and 27

Center Stage Theatre will add two "command performances" of its production of Hairspray. The added shows will occur at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 26 and 27.

"Our production completely sold out all ten performances before opening night," said Artistic Director Gary Scarpa, "which was a first for us. We waited to see if there was any major snow in the forecast before deciding to add shows, and since there's not, we are moving forward with two added performances."

The production stars Shelton residents Katie Sedlock and Justin Zenchuk as Tracy and Edna Turnblad. The cast is rounded out by a cast of talented leading players from a variety of cities throughout the region.

"The cast is excited about extending the run and ready to go," added Scarpa.

Center Stage is located at 54 Grove Street in Shelton. For tickets, call 203-225-6079 or
