For our last broadway show of the class, we got to pick what show we wanted to see. We could see either Hairspray or Boys Life, but I chose to see Hairspray for the second time. I couldn't wait to see it because it is one of my favorite plays on Broadway. I was happy because this time we did not have to get up to get the bus so early. So I slept in got in and then went right to the hub to go on the charter bus. When we got into the city, everyone went to Applebees to get some lunch. I got some barbeque chicken and mashed potatoes enough for three people! After eating all that great food we started to walk to the theater. At the theater we waited for Courtney to give us our tickets and then we went inside and waited for the show to start.
When the curtains opened the first song was "Good Mourning Balitmore" which is one of my favorite songs in the show. The play has so much energy and some great catchy tunes. The play is about a girl named Trace and how her dream of being on the Corny Collins Show. One day they have auditions and Trace try's out for the show hoping she will get in. This fun loving show really gets you going with its great music and dancing. This play is a must see!
