Broadway veterans Kecia Lewis Evans, Ashley Spencer, and Paul Vogt will headline the cast of the St. Louis MUNY production of Hairspray, August 3-9.

Based on the hit film by John Waters, Hairspray has music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Whitman, and a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan. It tells the story of Tracy Turnblad, an overweight Boston teenager in 1962 Baltimore, who achieves her dream of dancing on a local television show.

Vogt and Spencer are reprising the parts of Edna Turnblad and Amber Von Tussle, respectively, which they played on Broadway. Evans will take on the role of Motormouth Maybelle, with the cast also including Joline Mujica as Tracy Turnblad, Lara Teeter as Wilbur Turnblad, Meggie Cansler as Penny Pingleton, Constantine Rousouli as Link Larkin, and Christian White as Seaweed Stubbs.
