Hairspray Jr.

Saturday, March 24, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

The Medford youth musical theater company Spotlight Productions is presenting six performances of “Hairspray Jr.” at the Marsha Caron Theatre at Medford High School.

“Hairspray Jr.” is based on the film and hit stage musical of the same name, winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical. It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and spunky plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has one big dream — to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show on local TV. 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.

Additional performances will be presented at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, and at 7 p.m. on Sunday, March 25.

Ticket prices at the door will be $15 for adults are $12 for students.

Spotlight Productions is dedicated to educating, enlightening, and enriching the lives of children through the liveliness of the stage.  Spotlight educates students in technical, creative and artistic design in theatre production, as well as directing, choreography and stage movement.  Spotlight is dedicated to providing its students with the tools to empower them in building their self-esteem through gaining confidence, public speaking skills, and social skills.
