BACKGROUND: Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network… all without denting her ‘do! Boundaries of race and body size are about to get a big jolt!!

Requirements:

Sing best 16 bars of Broadway song, or popular song from the 60’s. Must have sheet music. Accompanist provided.

Come prepared with monologue or scene from your desired role.

Dance: Be prepared to learn a group dance. Come in appropriate dance clothing and jazz shoes or soft shoes.

Auditionees will be required to fill out an audition form at online sign-in, including previous theatre experience, conflicts during the rehearsal period, and contact information.

  Rehearsal/Workday commitment will include 3 weeknights per week starting June 27-Aug 10 for principals (3x a week in evenings), unless you are in the three week day camp for non principal role characters on July 24-Aug 11.  All must guarantee no conflicts in final rehearsal period (Aug 7-11) and ALL performances.

 Auditionees are encouraged to enroll in Hairspray drama music theatre camp July 21-Aug 11, whose meetings are from 9am-4pm with the assistant director, dance choreographer, music director and set designer of this production. Have fun AND get all the joys of summer included for children and teenagers only.

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love. That being the case, the 2018 Open Streets Summit in New Orleans felt like a family reunion of sorts.

The Long Journey to a Healing Home

In honor of Veterans Day this year, we are highlighting Perry Point Veterans Village, an extraordinary supportive housing community for homeless vets created by HELP USA in tandem with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, NEF and many other dedicated partners. The development was 10 years in the making and involved a veritable high-wire act of aligning bureaucracies and funding sources and overcoming political opposition. The result is worth the struggle: 75 safe, affordable homes for veterans who'd been surviving on the streets and now have a bona fide new lease on life.

From Recidivism to Rebuilding Lives: Q&A With Kelly Orians

Kelly Orians is an attorney, a 2019 Rubinger Fellow and the co-director of the First 72+, a ground-breaking New Orleans re-entry program for people returning from incarceration. Orians spoke with LISC about the state of criminal justice in Louisiana, the challenges and successes her clients experience, and how her organization is helping lift the burden of entrenched bureaucracy and predatory debt that keeps so many people from gaining real freedom after release.

This Is What Closing the Skills Gap Can Look Like

Chicago, like so many cities in the U.S., has jobs that need filling, and would-be workers who need the skills to build careers. A must-read article from Chicago’s WBEZ dives deep into how community organizations like the Jane Addams Resource Corp, our longtime partner and manager of a LISC-backed Bridges to Career Opportunities program, connect people with the technical and soft skills needed to land, and grow in, good, 21st-century manufacturing jobs.
