Mrs. Swarm, language arts and 8th grade AVID teacher stated, “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.”

Hairspray JR was 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 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,” Stated Swarm.

“Tracy fights to dethrone the reigning Miss Teen Hairspray, Amber von Tussle, and integrate a TV network in the process.
