Our middle school would like to perform Hairspray Jr. Our student population has some diversity, which is multi-racial, Hispanic, Asian, Indian, not many who are black. What are the requirements and can we work around this? Please send me an email with details, to kimschiff45@gmail.com. Also, does Edna have to be a male? Thank you, Kim

My teens have spoken and they want to do Hairspray Jr. I know you have sent some suggestions to others on how to be true to the script without the necessary diversity in our cast members. I would love a copy of those suggestions, debbie@musictheatrewest.org. Thanks!

My school is in an area without a lot of ethnic diversity. I'm wondering if there is a possibility to classify a group, not racially, but in some other way to make it work for our community? Please let me know any ideas. Thank you.

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.
