'Hairspray' extended through Jan. 24 in Sarasota

  Florida Studio Theatre's production of "Hairspray" was supposed to end this weekend. It was so popular that FST extended the run for a week.
 Even that apparently wasn't enough to satisfy the demand. FST has announced that it's holding over "Hairspray" for two more weeks, until Jan. 24. But it's absolutely, positively going to close then.
   "Hairspray"  is the musical version of a classic John Waters film about an indomitable teen girl in 1950s Baltimore who tries to integrate her favorite TV dance show. It's full of catchy song (including the show-stopper “Can’t Stop the Beat”).
   Show times are 8 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $18-$49. Call 941-366-9000 or go to
