This year, the Lawrence Summer Youth Theater is staging a production of the musical "Hairspray." In conjunction with that performance, the Lawrence Arts Center is planning a series of events to help contextualize and explain the tone and tenor of the times depicted in the show. KPR's Laura Lorson talked with Margaret Morris, the director of programs and partnerships at the Lawrence Arts Center, about what artists and teachers are hoping to accomplish with the "Behind the Story" series, which gets underway with a panel discussion tonight (TUE).
