Who We're Looking For

For the principle roles and teen ensemble, we’re looking for talented and diverse student performers ages 13-21. Performers should be excellent singers, actors and dancers and be able to create fun, energetic characters.

For the children’s ensemble and Li’l Inez, we’re seeking young performers with great voices, fun personalities, dance skills and onstage experience. The children’s ensemble will be featured in musical numbers so all will need to dance and take direction.

About the Show

The 1950's are out and change is in the air! "Hairspray," winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.

It's 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire -- to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her 'do!
