Men, 13 to 21: ‘Hairspray’ needs you!

Ladies, listen in for a moment while we talk to the guys about Hairspray. Guys: GET DOWN HERE THIS WEEK AND AUDITION for summer youth theater!  Hairspray is a big, fun show with a multiracial cast, including a singing, dancing ensemble of young men and women. You don’t need any prior theater experience to audition. We’re talking to you, gentlemen, because we always need more guys — and we want you to know that Hairspray isn’t for girls only. Besides the fun of the ensemble, the show also has specific male speaking and singing roles. Summer shows are a great place to make friends, express yourself and be part of something really enjoyable. Our auditions are relaxed, friendly and group-oriented. You don’t have to prepare anything in advance (our director explains this in the 2-minute video below, shot a few weeks ago at a Ragtime audition). Hairspray auditions are at 3606 Bridge Ave., Cleveland, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 22, Wednesday, May 23, and Thursday, May 24 (pick one night, and arrive 15 minutes early to register). Details are
