Three Gardner Edgerton High School students spent holiday break rehearsing. Sophomores Abbie Lane and Trevor Thoelke and junior Cooper McGuire auditioned last fall with youth from all over the Kansas City Metro area for roles in Music Theater for Young People’s production of “Hairspray.”
Students received scripts and music last fall to learn on their own. They began rehearsals on Dec. 26 learning the production in one week.
The shows are Jan. 3 through Jan. 5 in White Recital Hall at University of Missouri-Kansas City’s White Recital Hall. For more information, visit
