When Addison Garner was last on stage in 2020, it was on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, playing the part of Velma Von Tussle, mom to Tracy Turnblad’s nemesis Amber Von Tussle in “Hairspray.”

“I packed my bags for two weeks thinking I’d be back and stayed here for a year-and-a-half,” she says of being back in Opelika, where Garner made the best of a bad situation and created a Broadway Bootcamp during the pandemic.

Now, it’s back to “Hairspray” in the new national tour of the hit musical, but in a much bigger way. Garner has been cast as Velma Von Tussle, who sings the show-stopping “Miss Baltimore Crabs.” The new tour is set to launch in November.
