Audition Central: Hairspray JR.

Character Breakdown: Tracy Turnblad

Tracy Turnblad is a young lady with big hair and an even bigger personality! She is the hero of our story and she is sweet but also strong in her convictions. She is bigger in size than the other girls, but she isn't shy about it - she can still dance with the best of them! Make sure to cast an excellent singer, dancer and actor, but most importantly, cast a young lady who has wonderful stage presence and can easily capture the audience's hearts. Tracy should be played by a white actress.
