The British Theatre Academy presents HAIRSPRAY JR.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.Book by Thomas Meehan Mark O'Donnell Music by Marc Shaiman | Lyrics by Marc Shaiman Scott WittmanBased on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters
