Ellicott City: Talent a big part of the success of 'Hairspray'

If you heard roars of laughter and cheering coming from Mt. Hebron High School July 14, that was the sell-out crowd at Howard County Summer Theater's production of "Hairspray." I had the pleasure of being in the audience with my family.

With its explosive high energy, brilliant casting and talented musicians, the show could easily have been a Broadway production. This is no small feat when you consider it took the orchestration of over one hundred and forty people, including cast, creative, musicians and crew, to bring Hairspray to fruition.

Almost half of this talented team hail from Ellicott City.

Kudos to the musical's production team...
