The Omaha Community Playhouse costume department is looking for a team of talented hairstylists to assist with the fabulous 60s wigs in Hairspray. For this volunteer opportunity, you will be working under the direction of Kaylan Paisley. Originally from Omaha, Kaylan started her theater career as an apprentice at OCP. She went on to graduate from the North Carolina School of the Arts with a B.F.A. in Wig and Makeup Design for Theater and Film. Kaylan’s credits include wig construction and design for the first national tour of 101 Dalmatians, the Musical, wig stylist for national tours of CATS and most recently, Legally Blonde, the Musical. She has designed and constructed wigs for OCP’s A Christmas Carol, Chicago and Flyin’ West. Before she returns to national tours, we are thrilled to have her here as the wig and hair designer for Hairspray.
If you are a hairstylist with an interest in theatre and period hair design, we hope you will consider working on this show! Most work will be done in the evenings and on weekends. We are also looking for people interested in working backstage during the actual production helping the actors with their wig changes and styling touch-ups. Call the Omaha Community Playhouse costume shop at (402) 553-4890, ext 138 and ask to speak with Georgiann or Paula. We are setting up times through March to meet with Kaylan to talk about volunteering your time on this exciting show. Hairspray runs May 25–June 24, 2012, and we will begin work on styling the wigs during the first week of April.
