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.

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
