JLO to hold auditions for "Hairspray"

Juneau Lyric Opera Company has announced plans to produce the hit musical “Hairspray” in November 2012. “Hairspray” will be a collaborative production with Thunder Mountain High School. There will be at least two performance weekends in Juneau in November 2012, with the possibility of a third performance weekend at another Southeast Alaska community. JLO will be holding auditions for principal roles only the weekend of May 28 in Juneau. Choral auditions will be scheduled for sometime in the fall of 2011.

The show will be directed by Hal Ryder of the Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. In his 40-year theater career, Hal has directed more than 200 productions in locations all around the world, including JLO’s “The Mikado” in 2009.
