Director Walter A. Webster is looking for a large multi-ethnic cast.
Roles being auditioned for -
Tracy Turnblad - A high-spirited, irrepressible, chubby teen girl; she loves to dance and is eager for her life to kick in.
Edna Turnblad - Tracy's hefty loving, somewhat repressed mother, a laundress with deferred dreams. Looking for a male actor for the role.
Wilbur Tunblad - Trachy's father, a mischievous joke shop proprietor but always reliable dad.
Penny Pingleton - Tracy's ditzy but devoted best friend.
Corny Collins - The smooth and smart adult host of Baltimore's local T.V. teen dance show.
Link Larkin - The show's teen male dreamboat, ambitious but essentially good-hearted.
Amber Von Tussle - The show's resident blonde princess, conniving and selfish, but superficially perky.
Velma Von Tussle - The T.V. Station manager; a rich, bigoted, bossy widow who's pushing daughter Amber to the stardom she herself never had.
Motormouth Maybelle - The big brassy, all-embracing black radio D.J. and once-a-month guest host on Corny's show; she wears a blonde wig as her trademark
Seaweed J. Stubbs - Motormouth's sexy teen son, street smart but easygoing; his unique dance lessons give Tracy the edge she needs to catch Corny's attention.
Little Inez - Seaweed's litle sister, 12. She's cute but angry, impatient for the promised land of actual civil rights.
Prudy Pingleton - Penny's incredibly uptight and small-minded mother.
Male Authority Figures - Assorted middle-aged male roles: a nervous businessman, a condescending high school principal, a flamboyant fashion boutique owner, a cop and a corrupt jail gaurd.
Female Authority Figures - Assorted middle-aged female roles: a sadistic gym teacher, a cop, and a sardonic prison matron.
The Dynamites - A trio of ultra-glamorous black divas who emerge from a poster to be the magical hostesses of Tracy and Edna's whirlwind visit to the emerging swinging sixties.
Teen ensemble - Brad, Tammy, Fender, Brenda, Sketch, Shelly, I.Q, Lou Ann.
