HAIRSPRAY Coming in JuneTracy Turnblad, a large girl with big hair and a kind heart, 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. Baltimore will never be the same!
Your talents and hard work transformed the show into a delightful experience that our audiences thoroughly enjoyed!
YAI's SUMMER THEATER EXPERIENCE show is
DREAMS OF A COBBLER'S SON,
a musical fantasy on young Hans Christian Andersen’s life, imagining how his childhood experiences inspired and shaped the stories
we know and love that he wrote as an adult, including
The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling, The Steadfast Tin Soldier, The Little Matchstick Girl, and
The Little Mermaid. Join us for this orignal musical written by YAI's co-founders Jefferson Fietek and Benjamin Lacina.
Program dates: June 30 – August 18, 2013
We at the Young Artists Initiative believe that the arts should be accessible to all young people regardless of their race, beliefs or economic status. Too many young artists have been unable to participate in arts training because of the high tuition asked by other arts groups. We at YAI aim to provide quality programs and affordable prices. This is achieved through a large volunteer base of community members and professional artists. We also rely on the financial support of corporate and individual donations.
