Cody Craven, a 2009 graduate of Da Vinci High School and former winner of the “Davis High Idol” competition, will appear as Link Larkin in the Santa Rosa Summer Repertory Theater’s production of “Hairspray.” The show opened Saturday and continues through Aug. 13 at Santa Rosa Junior College.

Craven also has been cast as Harry in “Company,” which opens July 5 and runs through Aug. 7, and appears in the ensemble of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” which opens July 16 and runs through Aug. 11.

Craven graduated from the Pacific Conservatory for the Performing Arts in Santa Maria in May. He will be an intern at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater Company for the 2011-12 season.

Based on John Waters’ cult classic film, “Hairspray” won eight Tony Awards and inspired a remake of the movie. Set in 1960s Baltimore, “Hairspray” is the story of Tracy Turnblad, a misfit teenager who dreams of dancing on TV’s “Corny Collins Show.”

When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star, but she must use her newfound power to vanquish the program’s reigning princess, racially integrate the television show, and find true love — all without denting her ‘do!

The book for the Broadway show was written by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan, with music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman.

In addition to “Hairspray,” “Company” and “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” the repertory season also includes “A Flea in Her Ear,” opening Thursday, and “The Piano Lesson,” opening July 12.

Tickets for Santa Rosa performances are $25 general, $16 for seniors, $15 for students and $10 for youths 12 and under. They may be ordered at http://www.SummerRep.com, (707) 527-4307 or in person at the box office at the college’s Burbank Auditorium, 501 Mendocino Ave. in Santa Rosa. Box office hours are noon to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays.

Santa Rosa’s Summer Repertory Theater provides nationally acclaimed training to actors and theater technicians. This summer, more than 100 students will participate, 80 percent of them from California.
