In every city that HAIRSPRAY - THE BIG FAT ARENA SPECTACULAR tours to, on the final day of the show the principal cast gather together to have professional photographs taken with each group in the mass ensemble. After working alongside the stars of the show in the rehearsal room, this is a unique opportunity for the young performers in the show to connect with the principal cast in a more relaxed setting.
After the group photos are taken, the principal cast head backstage to meet the members of the mass ensemble individually, take selfies and sign autographs. The stars give their time freely, giving up their dinner break between shows to make this experience possible for the young hearts in the mass ensemble.
This is what the arena experience is all about; giving young creative people the opportunity to connect and learn from the people who are living the life they one day hope to live.
