‘Nicest Kids in Town’ needed

THE White Rock Theatre is looking for the ‘Nicest Kids in Town’ to join them for a summer of fun as this year’s audition date is announced for the White Rock Summer Youth Project, Hairspray

This year they are seeking local performers with big talent, to join them for the Hastings premiere of the Broadway show with big hair and a big heart.

If you’re aged nine to 19 years and love to sing, dance and act then this is the show for you!

It’s 1962, the 50s are out and change is in the air. Baltimore’s Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion – to dance.

She wins a spot on the local TV dance show, The Corny Collins Show and is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity.

Can a trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the programme’s reigning princess, and win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin?

Renowned for its quality productions, the White Rock Summer Youth Project offers a fantastic opportunity for local youngsters to work with an experienced creative team and a live band, in a professional working venue, to present some of the greatest musicals around.

Community and business development manager, Nikki Leach said: “The Summer Youth Project gets bigger and better each year and we are all extremely excited about this year’s production of Hairspray.

“Hastings has some fantastic young talent and they are always a joy to work with over the summer.

“This year we get the chance to add 50s frocks, beehive wigs and some fantastic dance routines into the mix, and we’re hoping lots of local youngsters will come and join in the fun.”

The Summer Youth Project runs from Monday, August 11 to Saturday, August 23, 10am-5pm each day, with performances to the general public from Thursday, August 21 to Saturday, August 23.

Auditions are on Sunday, May 11 from 9am, at the White Rock Theatre, Hastings.
