REVIEW: Hairspray produced by Greer Cultural Arts Council
MAR 3, 2012

Mitchell Smith as Link Larkin with Lauren Powell as Amber Von Tussle.  Mitchell & Lauren were fun to watch all evening.

People around Greer have been telling me I needed to go see the Greer Cultural Arts Council's production of Hairspray, so the wife and I ventured out this Friday. Growing up in a small town (Saluda), I've always enjoyed local productions where I know many of the cast. I would attend to support friends/family, and therefore be more than willing to overlook quality shortfalls. With that said, I also greatly appreciate top talent cast in plays at Greenville's Peace Center, Atlanta's Fox Theatre, and of course, NYC's Broadway.

So where does that put GCAC's Hairspray? For me ... it's in the perfect spot. As Lindsay and I sat through the first few numbers, I leaned back and truly began enjoying the moment. Here was a production that featured many people I knew from around Greer (reminding me of when I watched plays back in Saluda) however the quality exceeded (OK ... far exceeded) those productions from my hometown.
