Audition Description
In 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, plump teenager Tracy Turnblad's dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local television dance program, alongside teen heartthrob Link Larkin. When she gets put in detention with Seaweed Stubbs and other African-American students in the school, they teach her some of their dance moves, and her new-found groove wins her a spot on Corny’s show. Tracy becomes a celebrity overnight and uses her influence to advocate for racial integration on the TV show. She faces plenty of cruelty and interference from the show’s narrow-minded producer, Velma Von Tussle, and her popular but vicious daughter, Amber. But Tracy has lots of allies on her side, including her parents Edna and Wilbur, her best friend Penny Pingleton, her love interest Link, and show host Corny Collins, not to mention Seaweed, his little sister Inez, and his mother Motormouth Maybelle, the host of “Negro Day” on Corny’s show. With their help, Tracy manages to overcome bigotry and integrate the TV network. Tony Award-winning Hairspray continues to be one of the most widely produced musicals today, not only because of its irresistible songs and high-energy dances, but also because of the beautiful message of acceptance. Tracy Turnblad and her friends teach us all to look past the color of one’s skin and fight for every human being’s equal rights.

  • Tracy Turnblad

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Female
    Tracy Turnblad is a young lady with big hair and an even bigger personality! She is the hero of our story and she is sweet but also strong in her convictions. She is bigger in size than the other girls, but she isn't shy about it -she can still dance with the best of them! Make sure to cast an excellent singer, dancer and actor, but most importantly, cast a young lady who has wonderful stage presence and can easily capture the audience's hearts.
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Corny Collins

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Male
    Corny Collins, the host of "The Corny Collins Show," is a Baltimore celebrity. Foremost, Corny is a charmer, so be sure to cast a young performer with great energy and who is unafraid of being in the center spotlight. Corny should be both an experienced singer and actor.
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Edna Turnblad

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Female
    Edna Turnblad is Tracy's loving mother who doesn't spend much time outside the house. She works days and nights as a laundress in her home, and her lack of social interaction has made her a bundle of nerves. This is a fantastic role for a young white lady with great acting chops who can transform into an older character. Edna should be a proficient singer and be willing to sell it with strong character choices.
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Wilbur Turnblad

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Male
    Wilbur Turnblad is Edna's loving husband and Tracy's supportive father who just wants the best for his girls. This is a good role for a new performer. Make sure the actor playing Wilbur complements Edna. It can be fun to cast a Wilbur who is significantly smaller in stature than Edna for some great physical comedy!
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Penny Pingleton

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Female
    Penny Pingleton is Tracy's fun and sheltered sidekick. She is a young lady caught between her mother's very strict rules and her own wants and desires to be just another teenage girl. This is a good role for an actress with a sweet voice and great comedic instincts.
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Prudy Pingleton

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Female
    Prudy Pingleton is a fun role for a performer who can really jump headfirst into a character role. She is Penny's eccentric but loving mother, who wants the best for her daughter but is extreme in her means. Prudy should be a good actress, capable of capturing the conflict of being a caring mother who can't help but be overprotective.
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Amber Von Tussle

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Female
    Amber Vontussle is a prom queen nightmare! She is definitely "The Corny Collins Show" favorite, but she is competitive and has a bad attitude. Amber is a great performer, so cast a young lady who can do it all.
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Velma Von Tussle

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Female
    Velma Von Tussle is a carbon copy of Amber - just twenty years older and meaner! She is most concerned with making sure her daughter wins Miss Teenage Baltimore.
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Link Larkin

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Male
    Link Larkin is Baltimore's biggest heartthrob, and Tracy's dream guy. Link is considered the best performer in town, so cast a young man who is a triple threat - a great actor, singer and dancer. He should have a lot of charisma and a sparkle in his eye. Think of any teenage idol who is able to reduce girls to tears - there's your guy!
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Seaweed J. Stubbs

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Male
    Seaweed J. Stubbs is the object of Penny's affections, and together, they are determined to defy the segregation laws of the 1960s. Seaweed can do it all! This is a great role for an experienced young black performer who can sing, dance and act well.
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Little Inez Stubbs

    Age: 10 - 11, Gender: Female
    Little Inez Stubbs is Seaweed's little sister and a great breakout role for a black actress. Little Inez gets her moment in the spotlight, so be sure to cast a young lady who is a great singer and dancer. Cast an actress with a quiet exterior who can and will be bold when the opportunity comes.
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Motormouth Maybelle

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Female
    Motormouth Maybelle is a soulful part for a black performer who can play an older age. In this story, she is the face of the Civil Rights Movement and sings the beautiful anthem, "I Know Where I've Been." Cast a performer with a great voice and more importantly, someone who has strong stage presence.
    Payment: no
  •  
  • Judine

    Age: 18 - 60, Gender: Female
    The Dynamites (Judine, Kamilah and Shayna) are a dynamic musical trio, iconic of the Motown era and the 1960s. Think the Supremes. Cast three young women who are advanced singers and dancers who complement each other. They don't need to look alike, but cast a group that can be synchronous in their music and dance.
