Sam Leicht, Rosie Upton, Eli Emmit, and Amelia Jo Parish in HairsprayGood gawd is the Timber Lake Playhouse’s Hairspray fun. I went into Saturday’s matinée with eager anticipation and left with a sense of thrilled enjoyment, floating on a cloud of happiness. Director Lili-Anne Brown’s production of this musical based on John Waters’ 1988 film is not only a helluva good time for us, but a rockin’ wild ride for Amelia Jo Parish’s Tracy Turnblad, as Hairspray's lead goes from overweight sideliner to local-dance-show star to racial-integration crusader in 1960s Baltimore.

Sydney Hoyle, Sophie Brown, Daryn Harrell, Julia Mitchell, Kelsey Andres, Katie Wesler, and Erica Vlahinos in Sweet CharityThe Timber Lake Playhouse’s current production of Sweet Charity features the single most electrifying, exhilarating dance number I’ve ever seen on a stage. I’m well aware of what a sweeping and potentially exaggerated generalization that statement is, and almost hesitate in making it, because it’s the type of effusive praise that can easily make theatre-goers (to say nothing of theatre participants) roll their eyes and say, “Oh, come on.” But I’ll say it again: Sweet Charity features the single most electrifying, exhilarating dance number I’ve ever seen on a stage. And I’m betting that fellow patrons at Thursday’s performance might easily feel the same way.

Chris Froseth in Buddy: The Buddy Holly StoryAs the title character in the Timber Lake Playhouse's Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, Chris Froseth is a spectacularly confident dork. With his slender frame, curly mop of brown hair, and iconic horn-rimmed glasses, he nails the physicality to perfection, and his cascading drawl and thrilling rock vocals are oftentimes uncannily similar to Holly's. Yet what's even more impressive is how completely the actor seems to capture the singer/songwriter's gawky yet fantastically determined spirit.

the "Ain't Misbehavin'" ensemble At any musical performance, the applause and cheers of a large, captivated audience are thrilling to experience, and at Saturday night's splendid production of Ain't Misbehavin' at the Timber Lake Playhouse, the crowd, on more than a few occasions, did indeed go nuts.

But there's a sound that, in musical theatre, may be even more electrifying: that of a large, captivated audience not making any noise at all.
