HAIRSPRAY JR

October 20 - 29, 2017 Stoner Theater

Presented By: Des Moines Young Artists' Theatre

A big musical about one girl's dream of dancing and changing the world!

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.

Book by Thomas Meehan & Mark O'Donnell
Music by Marc Shaiman
Lyrics by Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman
Based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters
