Special Hairspray performance for faculty, staff

The Performing Arts Department in Arts & Sciences will present a special “Celebrate the Staff” preview performance of Hairspray: The Broadway Musical at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, in Edison Theatre. The preview is open to all staff members of the WUSTL community (including Aramark and Bon Appetit employees).
