OSA's All School Musical "HAIRSPRAY!"
CAN’T STOP THE BEAT
Over 100 Oakland School for the Arts students will take part in this immense production.
HAIRSPRAY, winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical and inspired the 2007 blockbuster feature film. This is a family-friendly musical with lots of laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs. It’s 1962 in Baltimore, the lovable plus size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire -- to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her fabulous 'do.

Malcolm Jamal Warner as 2013 Commencement Speaker!
Emmy-nominated actor and director Malcolm-Jamal Warner has become known in the entertainment business for not only his seasoned acting talents, but also his accomplishments on the music, directing, and producing fronts, making him one of the most accomplished talents in the industry today. As a staple in television and film for over twenty-five years, Warner first rose to national prominence by starring on the celebrated and long-running classic television series “The Cosby Show.” His work on the show garnered him a Primetime Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, and set the stage for him to have a long career in the public eye. Most recently, Warner has been seen on some of the hottest television series on television, including a notable, recurring role on NBCʼs hit show “Community,” and guest star roles on TNTʼs “Hawthorne,” CBSʻ “The Cleaner,” and Showtimeʼs “Dexter.” In October 2011, Warner returned to television, starring on the highly anticipated, BET original series “Reed Between the Lines.” The series will follow the lives of Alex, an English professor, [played by Warner] and Carla, a psychologist, [played by Tracee Ellis Ross] as they navigate lifeʼs ups and downs with wit and humor.
