BREC ‘s Independence Park Theatre Presents Hairspray, Jr.

EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH – Independence Park Theatre presents Hairspray, Jr. Oct. 18-20 at Independence Park Theatre, 7800 Independence Blvd.  


GOOD MORNING BALTIMORE!!! Independence Park Theatre presents Hairspray, Jr. 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.
