Hairspray, Jr. Auditions

South Florida Society for Arts and Culture's Youth Arts Workshop is excited to present HairsprayJr. as part of our Spring Children's Theatre schedule. Auditions will be held December 4 and 5 from 5:30 pm -8:30 pm. You will only need to come to ONE night of auditions: either December 4th or 5th, 2018. You will need to stay for the entire audition time. Call backs will held December 6, 2018 from 5:30 pm -8:30 pm.


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.
