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


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.

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!

How to mic Lion King Kids

Any ideas/mic plots for Lion King Kids?  With five Rafikis, I can't find a good way to have less than 10 mics, which is killing my tiny budget.  Thanks!

Old Version

Does this mean the original version with "WHY ME?" for Jafar is no longer available?  While I love this new script, I did enjoy Jafar's song.  I've done Aladdin Jr. twice -- it's a great choice for Middle Schools!
