Lied Center experience comes full circle with 'Hairspray' audition

Lincoln, Neb.--Like Tracy Turnblad from the musical "Hairspray," Michelle Ingle tends to latch onto the positives around her.

For instance, a single ticket to a musical performance ignited her life's passion and led to the senior theater performance major auditioning for her "dream role."

As a 12 year old, Ingle was able to see "Hairspray" on the stage at the Lied Center for Performing Arts when tickets were provided through the Lied's Performance Fund program, which grants 3,000 tickets annually to children who otherwise would not be able to attend a show.
