Just about everybody loves the musical Hairspray and last weekend a packed Byron Theatre saw the Bright Lights Performance School perform Hairspray Jr, a show that celebrates diversity and delivers a positive message with a sense of humour.
Hairspray JR is directed by Rebecca Balfour and choreographed by Lee Purdie and tells the story set in 1962, of a spunky, plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, who 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 friends and family, the rhythm of Tracy’s new beat just might prove unstoppable.
The show has a great cast who perform this family-friendly show piled high with laughter, friendship, deliriously tuneful songs, and an abundance of energetic dance numbers.
Check it out at this weekend at the Byron Theatre – Saturday September 28 at 2pm and 6.30pm and Sunday 29 at 2pm.
