Lost Nation Theater's Artistic Directors and members of the Hairspray Production Team and Cast Rose at a Very Unusual Hour on Monday April 25.

Why?

To be on TV with Alaina Pinto of ABC and Fox - Local 22 and Local 44.

Every half hour between 5-8:30am Alaina explored another area of LNT's Hairspray.

Joining her LNT Producing Artistic Director - and Hairsrpay Director Kathleen Keenan, Hairpsray's Musical Director Nick Bombicino, and actors Altan Cross, Marisssa Maggagno, Lauren DePuy Shawn A Sturdevant, Bill Pelton, Leon Evan, Melissa Victor and Mea Wilderson.

Yes - beleive it or not, we were providing snippets of song & dance at 5:30 in the morning. Cast members sang and danced - and also taught Alaina a few moves - like "the Madison" and "Peyton Place after Midnight".

We were also joined by Nathan Suter who spoke of LNT's partnership with the Peace & Justice Center for Hairspray which features a post-show panel discussion on Sunday May 1 ("Tracy Turnblad's bold anti-racist actions and what we can do in present day Vermont.")  and a Special Workhop on Wednesday May 4 at 7pm in the theater's lobby: Why Does Tracy Turnblad Care about Racial Justice?
