Round Rock ISD Fine Arts Summer Musical
Stony Point High School Auditorium
Join us this Friday, July 26th for our summer musical performance of Hairspray Jr. Students from ten Round Rock ISD middle schools have been working over a four-week camp and academy combo to craft a wonderful production from the sets to to the performances, this is a must-see event for the greater Round Rock community!
Don’t know Hairspray? Here is a bit of a synopsis….
The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray JR. is the family-friendly musical piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. Adapted from the Broadway production that won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Hairspray JR. is a show that will celebrate your students’ diversity and bring audiences to their feet with its positive message and uproarious sense of humor.
It’s 1962, and spunky, plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, 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 outsized mom, Edna, and guest DJ, Motormouth Maybelle, the rhythm of Tracy’s new beat just might prove unstoppable.
Thanks to Round Rock ISD State and Federal Department for partnering on this project for student equity and learning!
