Hairspray Jr.

From 7:00PM to n/a

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. HAIRSPRAY JR, based on the film and hit stage musical of the same name -- winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical -- has been adapted for young performers as part of the MTI Broadway Junior Collection. Hairspray Jr. presented by the Champaign Park District Youth Theatre Program Tickets available at thevirginia.org
