Hairspray Live! Cast Practices in New Rehearsal Photos!

As the highly-anticipated premiere of Hairspray Live! gets closer, the cast continues to put in work at rehearsals!

We have some new behind-the-scenes shots of Harvey Fierstein, Jennifer Hudson, Derek Hough, Martin Short, Garrett Clayton, Ephraim Sykes, Shahadi Wright Joseph, and Maddie Baillio getting ready for the big show.

Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Hairspray Live! takes place in 1962 Baltimore.

Here’s the synopsis: Plump teenager Tracy Turnblad’s dream is to dance on “The Corny Collins Show,” a local TV program. When against all odds Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight and meets a colorful array of characters, including the resident dreamboat, Link; the ambitious mean girl, Amber; an African-American boy she meets in detention, Seaweed; and his mother, Motormouth Maybelle, the owner of a local record store.

Tracy’s mother is the indomitable Edna, and she eventually encourages Tracy on her campaign to integrate the all-white “Corny Collins Show.”

Hairspray Live! will air on Wednesday, December 7 @ 8PM ET/PT on NBC.
