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. diversity and other elements
I am interested in doing Hairspray, but have some question. Does Tracy have to be a girl of larger size, can you get away with someone who is on the more average size? Do I enhance her size through costume? I do have some diversity in my school, but how many students would I need to represent the show in the best way possible? I can cover the principal parts, but I am concerned about the supporting cast and ensemble. What modifications can you make without losing integrity.

Diversity Challenged
We would love to do Hairspray Jr. but our students are a very homogeneous group. Any advice on how to handle casting the show or is it recommended to just not do it such integration is such an important part of the story?
