“It’s 1962 in Baltimore, Maryland, and quirky, plus-sized, teenage Tracy Turnblad has one dream: to dance on The Corny Collins Show. When she gets put in detention with the 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. Overnight, Tracy transforms from a nobody into a star, and uses her newfound influence to advocate for racial integration on the television show. Tracy faces scrutiny and bullying from the network producer, Velma, and her popular, but vicious, daughter, Amber. With the help of the teenage heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (the host of ‘Negro Day’), Tracy overcomes the odds and succeeds in her mission to integrate The Corny Collins Show. Tony Award-winning Hairspray continues to be one of the most widely produced musicals today, not only because of its wit and charm, but also because of the beautiful message of acceptance and progress that it portrays. The bright, energetic story of Tracy Turnblad teaches us all to look past the color of one’s skin and fight for every human being’s equal rights.”

Where

1703 E. 14th Street, Greenville, NC

Also, inform us of all your possible schedule conflicts at the audition. We will have a few rehearsals with the Stage Manager and the Gibbs family and Webb family during the first two weeks following auditions. After April 17th , we will begin rehearsals in earnest for an opening on June 2nd.

The Stage Manager has the bulk of the lines in the show and should expect to memorize the part verbatim.

There are 24-27 roles in this ensemble. Some of the roles may be doubled. That is, if necessary, some players will be asked to play more than one role. There also may be some understudies who will have both their role to learn and another role as a back-up in case of illness.

The play will be performed in its entirety. This is a requirement of the publishers. Everyone will learn their parts as written by Thornton Wilder. He is the Pulitzer Prize winner, not our actors. Please be prepared to read from the script.

Our Town will run from June 2nd to June 10th. There may be an additional performance for a special audience during one of our dress or pick-up rehearsals.

Show Information:

The play is set in Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire in 1901. It is a play about the human condition as all good plays are. Thornton Wilder won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1938 for this work. The first act is about daily life in this small town. The second act is titled Love and Marriage and is centered around the wedding of Emily Webb to George Gibbs. The third act is set in a cemetery and is titled Death and Dying. The act’s central theme focuses on how life is not truly appreciated by the living while they live.

The main character is the Stage Manager who sets the scene and facilitates the advancement of the plot. He/she acts as both a chorus to the action and during the play takes on several roles and enters the action. The stage manager has been variously played by Thornton Wilder himself, Hal Halbrook, Spaulding Gray, Paul Newman, Helen Hunt and recently by David Cromer who also directed the play at the Barrow Street Theater in New York.
