Hairspray JR.

Hairspray JR.
You can't stop the beat in this big and bold adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical about one girl's inspiring dream to dance and change the world.

The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray JR. is the family-friendly musical piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs.  Adapted from the Broadway production that won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, 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.

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 newfound 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.

Hairspray JR. is filled with a host of parts for a wide cross-section of students and an abundance of energetic production numbers.

Hairspray JR with Latino & Asian students

Hi there!

My school is doing Hairspray JR this year. We are a diverse urban school and most of the students participating in theatre are Latino or Asian (we have very few students who are white or black that participate in the program). Are there suggestions for how to approach casting when students are non-white but are members of other races that are not African American?

Hairspray with non-diverse cast

Hi!

I know that you have sent emails in the past with information on doing Hairspray with a non-diverse cast and I would greatly appreciate that information.  In my case we have a lot of different ethnicities, but few white students and a small amount of native African students.  The rest of the student population is Asian and Hispanic.  I would love to do this musical if possible.

Can I produce this musical without the racial diversity?

Because of the nature of the show, I was wondering if there was an adaptation of this show that could include a non-diverse cast.

Similar to everyone else’s about producing this show with a non-diverse cast.

I absolutely love this show & would possibly like to produce it in a non-diverse school. This is the main reason I have not done this show yet. Would it be possible to send the link to my e-mail about how to do this show with a non-diverse cast?

Thank you!

I am checking on a submitted contract...

I submitted my contract early Jan and haven't heard back.  I have emailed and tried calling Roseanne George but have not heard back.  Our Jr. play is in April and it is making me nervous.
