HMS/CRMS Spring 2018 Musical – Hairspray JR
Huntley Middle School and Clinton Rosette Middle School are proud to announce their Spring 2018 musical, “Hairspray JR.”!!
You can’t stop the beat in this big and bold adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical about one girl’s inspiring dream to dance and change 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.
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.
Show times are: Friday, May 18 at 7pm, Saturday, May 19 at 7pm and Sunday, May 20 at 2pm. Doors open approximately 30 minutes before curtain time. All shows are in the Huntley Middle School Auditorium (1515 S. Fourth St., DeKalb, IL). Tickets are available at the door, $8 for adults and $4 for students.
