The Downtown Actors present HAIRSPRAY the Musical at the Academy Center of the Arts this August.   About HAIRSPRAY the Musical: It’s 1962 in Baltimore, Maryland, and quirky, plus-sized, teenage Tracy Turnblad has one dream: to dance on The Corny Collins Show. When she gets put in detention with the African-American students in the school, they teach her some of their dance moves, and her new found groove wins her a spot on Corny’s show. Overnight, Tracy transforms from a nobody into a star, and uses her newfound influence to advocate for racial integration on the television show. Tracy faces scrutiny and bullying from the network producer, Velma, and her popular, but vicious, daughter, Amber. With the help of the teenage heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (the host of ‘Negro Day’), Tracy overcomes the odds and succeeds in her mission to integrate The Corny Collins Show. Tony Award-winning Hairspray continues to be one of the most widely produced musicals today, not only because of its wit and charm, but also because of the beautiful message of acceptance and progress that it portrays. The bright, energetic story of Tracy Turnblad teaches us all to look past the color of one’s skin and fight for every human…

This class will study mechanical perspective or using guides to construct space and empirical perspective or judging perspective as the eye sees it. We’ll also investigate aerial perspective which looks at how atmosphere affects depth perception. This is a great class for one just beginning or for artists who wish to improve their ability to portray depth in drawings or paintings. Students will need to purchase a cork back metal 18” ruler for the class but all other supplies will be provided by the Academy. ____________________________________________________________ SENIOR DISCOUNTS (ages 62+) Enter your DOB and apply the coupon code ‘SENIOR’ for a $25 discount off any class over $75.
