Hairspray Junior - Good morning, Baltimore! It's 1962, and spunky plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has one big dream - to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When she finally gets her shot, she's transformed from social outcast to sudden star. In balancing her new-found power with her desire for justice, Tracy fights to dethrone the reigning Miss Teen Hairspray, Amber von Tussle, and integrate a TV network in the process. With the help of her outsized mom, Edna, and guest DJ Motormouth Maybelle, the rhythm of Tracy's new beat just might prove unstoppable.
Based on the film and hit stage musical of the same name, (and winner of eight Tony Awards® - including Best Musical), this amazing show has been adapted for young performers as part of the Broadway Junior Collection®. With a host of parts for a wide cross-section of students and an abundance of energetic production numbers, Hairspray Jr. is a show that will celebrate your students' diversity and bring audiences to their feet with its positive message and uproarious sense of humor. Cast: 9 boys, 15 girls, plus ensemble.
The Broadway Junior Collection provides educators the opportunity to present authorized young performers' editions of the best Broadway musicals ever produced. The musicals in this series have been tailored to the needs of young performers and the resources available to schools and educators. These are author-approved, condensed versions (60-70 minutes) which preserve the spirit and essence of the original, while eliminating elaborate production elements which may be beyond the physical and financial capabilities of most schools.
