MARIANNA—Chipola College theatre director Charles Sirmon announces open auditions for the hit musical “Hairspray,” Jan. 7-8 at 6 p.m., in the Center for the Arts.

“Hairspray” tells the story of Tracy Turnblad, a large girl with big hair and a kind heart, who has only one passion—to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show" and is quickly transformed into a teen celebrity. She then successfully sets out to vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of the super handsome Link Larkin, and racially integrate the television show.

Sirmon will cast a minimum of 18 women and 14 men in named roles. He also will cast a dancing/singing ensemble. Some roles are race and gender specific. There also are opportunities for anyone interested in working with the backstage crew.

For information, contact Sirmon at 850-718-2227 or email
