This afternoon, it is with great pride that we make our first announcement regarding the 2014 season. This fall, our nationally acclaimed, award winning youth theatre company will be presenting Hairspray JR, an adaptation of the hit Broadway musical geared for performance by younger actors. Exact run dates are still to be announced, as are audition dates. Following the run this fall, the cast will prepare a fifteen minute selection of the show which they will present at the 2015 Junior Theatre Festival in Atlanta, GA.
Good morning, Baltimore! 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 new-found 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.
