Each year more than 500 Brookline High School students participate in our school's vibrant programs in music, dance, drama, and stagecraft, creating dozens of performances. A committee of the BHS PTO, FoPA is a volunteer parent organization dedicated to supporting this activity and to ensuring that the performing arts flourish and remain a vital part of education at BHS. Join us for our next FoPA meeting, January 5 at 7:00 p.m. in the Teachers' Lounge. Contact us if you'd like more information.

"Hairspray" is not just a great musical but also a smart commentary on social injustices of America in the 1960s. It features music by Marc Shaiman, who wrote the lyrics with Scott Wittman, and a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan. It is based on the acclaimed 1988 John Waters film "Hairspray" that stared Divine. The songs include '60s-style dance music and Motown rhythm and blues. Set in 1962 Baltimore, "Hairspray" is the story of teen Tracy Turnblad, who, though considered too “plumb,” dreams of dancing on The Corny Collins Show, a TV dance program based on the real-life Buddy Deane Show. When Tracy wins a role on the show, despite the objections of the director, she becomes an overnight celebrity and meets a diverse array of characters who change her world and challenge the people around her.
