Description

This drama lesson focuses on the Tony award winning musical Hairspray. Hairspray tells the story of Tracy Turnblad who advocates for racial integration and succeeds in her mission to integrate The Corny Collins Show. Students have an opportunity to study its journey to Broadway, composers, plot, trivia, etc.

The lesson can stand alone or be combined with one of my Famous Artist Biographies (Lin Manuel Miranda or Sarah Bareilles for example) or other musical lessons (Hamilton or Wicked)
