Hairspray Jr.

Hairspray JR - Summer 2016

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. 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 D.J. Motormouth Maybelle, the rhythm of Tracy’s new beat just might prove unstoppable.

    Attack of…The Blob!

    The Blob

    Everyone look out! Soon the most horrifying monster menace ever conceived will be oozing into the Multnomah Arts Center. A falling star lands outside of town bringing a creature from outer space. It creeps, it crawls, it leaps…it will eat you alive! Only the local teens goofing around that night know about the danger facing their town, but no one will believe them! Oh no, there goes another helpless townsperson!
