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!

Character Breakdown:
Tracy Turnblad - A pleasantly plump teenager with a big heart who has dreams of being a dancing star - as
soon as she's out of detention for her big hair. Tracy isnft afraid to be herself and stand up for what she believes in.
She must be friendly, relentless, and goodhearted with a vibrant, lovable personality and love to sing and dance.
Tracy is on stage for a LOT of the show so she must have stamina and talent . she performs in 10+ numbers
including "Good Morning Baltimore," "I Can Hear The Bells," and many more! It is truly a BIG role! Mezzo-Belt Edna Turnblad - Tracyfs kind, plus-sized mother; runs a laundry business out of her home but hasn't been out in a
while. Played by Harvey Fierstein on Broadway, and John Travolta in the movie, this drag role requires a strong
comic male performer who is ready for his inner woman to take the spotlight. Edna is not a man pretending to be a
woman, she is all woman! Just, you know, with a distinctive voice. Performs in 5+ numbers including "You're
Timeless To Me." Tenor. 

Wilbur Turnblad - Tracy's goofy father, who owns the Har-De-Har Hut joke shop and is still madly in love with
his wife, Edna. He encourages Tracy to follow her dreams. Performs in 2+ numbers including "You're Timeless To
Me." Baritone. 

Corny Collins - the exciting, confident dancing and singing host of his own TV dance show (think American
Bandstand at its inception). Corny is in favor of Tracy and racial integration. Performs in 4+ numbers including
"Nicest Kids In Town" and "Hairspray." Tenor.

Penny Pingleton - Tracy's slightly dorky, but lovable best friend who is often by her side (when not grounded for
life by her mother, Prudy). Falls head over heels for Seaweed. Performs in 4+ numbers including "Mama, I'm A Big
Girl Now" and "Without Love." Belt. 

Amber von Tussle - bratty, selfish resident princess of The Corny Collins Show. Her mother's daughter through
and through, she is willing to do anything to win the Miss Teenage Hairspray pageant. Council Member. Performs
in 7+ numbers including "Cooties." Belt. 

Velma von Tussle - Amber's slim and attractive but overbearing mother who pushes her daughter to seek
stardom. Velma is the scheming producer of The Corny Collins Show who tries to steer it in the 'white' direction.
Her sensitivities are offended at the very sight of Tracy. A great villainess role. Performs in 4+ numbers including
"Miss Baltimore Crabs". Belt. 

Link Larkin - Teenage heartthrob, aspiring young Elvis, and male lead dancer on The Corny Collins Show. Falls in
love with Tracy (Amber is soooo jealous!). Council Member. Performs in 7+ numbers including "It Takes Two."
Crooning Baritone. 

Seaweed J. Stubbs - Motormouth Maybelle's son and a talented dancer on The Corny Collins Show, but only
allowed on "Negro Day." Ends up in detention with Tracy. Falls in love with Penny. Performs in 4+ numbers
including "Run And Tell That." Tenor. 

Motormouth Maybelle - the sassy Corny Collins "Negro Day" DJ. Owner of a record store and mother to
Seaweed and Little Inez. Plus-sized, she helps Edna find pride in herself. Performs in 3+ numbers including "Big,
Blonde & Beautiful" and "I Know Where I've Been." Soulful Alto. 

Little Inez - Seaweed's little sister and just as talented a dancer. Tries to audition for The Corny Collins Show but
is turned away because she is black by Velma. Performs in 3+ numbers including "Run And Tell That." Belt. 

The Dynamites - Judine, Kamilah, and Shayna . Talented black vocal trio a la The Supremes. Featured in many
numbers together and usually in tight harmony. May double for other ensemble roles like 'Cindy Watkins,' etc. Council Members - Tammy, Brad, Fender, Brenda, Sketch, Shelley, IQ, Lou Ann . Dancers and singers on The
Corny Collins Show. Perform in 5+ numbers including "Nicest Kids In Town" and "You Can't Stop The Beat."

Other Students - Gilbert, Duane, Lorraine, Stooie, Thad . Kids we find in detention, and most in Motormouth
Maybelle's record shop. Perform in 4+ numbers including "Welcome to the 60's" and "You Can't Stop The Beat." Female Authority Figure - The roles of Prudy Pingleton (Penny's uptight mother), the sadistic gym teacher, and
the prison matron are often played by one cameo performer. 

Male Authority Figure - The roles of Harriman F. Spritzer (President of Ultra Clutch cosmetics, Corny Collins
show sponsor), the high blood pressure principal, and Mr. Pinky (owner of a plus-sized dress shop) are often played
by one cameo performer.

A few other Ensemble roles may also be available. TBD

Hairspray and Ethnicity and Body Types
In general, you have to physically glook the part to play a theatrical role. A strong component of the Hairspray
story revolves around race in the 1960's, as well as specific body types and ages. It is our goal to have the
following characteristics appear on the stage to forward the story:
. Black/African-American
. White/Caucasian
. Plus-sized (Pleasantly plump!)
. Notably slimmer than plus-sized Several roles in the play do not call for a specific ethnicity or body type.
Ginsberg Productions is an Equal Opportunity organization and encourages everyone of all races and sizes to audition for
age appropriate roles. Hairspray is fairly unique in its specificity for ethnicity and body type.
