Valley Youth Theatre


August 12th  thru 28th


Herberger Theater Center 

Valley Youth Theatre kicks off its 23rd season by having a rockin’ good time with the smash hit musical, Hairspray!  at the Herberger Theater Center. Experience the doo-wop fun as Tracy Tumblad, a pleasantly plump teen , turns 1962 Baltimore on its head when she gets to dance on the popular Corny Collins show!  Can she vanquish the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a TV network- all without denting her do?  With show-stopping hits like “You Can’t Stop the Beat”, “Good Morning, Baltimore”, and “Welcome to the Sixties”, your toes will be tapping the night away!

Tickets go on Sale June 10th at the Herberger Theater Box Office


Tickets range from $17.00 to $33.00 (plus HTC charges) and are available online at or by calling the Herberger Box Office at 602-252-8497.
