Shannon Durig

Singer/actress Shannon Durig, who grew up in the KC suburb of Overland Park, Kan., appeared in the Broadway musical Hairspray for the thousandth time on March 13, 2008.

Durig was Tracy Turnblatt, the show’s lead, for more than three years. She first joined the show in 2003 as that role’s understudy, then took it over in July 2005.

The 1,000-performance milestone happened near the end of her run, as she left the show in mid-April 2008. Since leaving the show, she has acted and done voice work on several Disney Channel shows.
