In addition to sharing an extensive gallery of photos from the on-screen portion of “Hairspray Live!,” NBC also shared some off-stage looks from the event.

The newly released photos include off-stage shots of stars Dove Cameron, Kristin Chenoweth, Jennifer Hudson, Maddie Baillio, Ephraim Sykes, Garrett Clayton, Derek Hough, and more.

Backstage host Darren Criss (or is it Darren Cross?) and executive producer Neil Meron are also featured in a shot together.

“Hairspray Live!,” the fourth installment in NBC’s annual “Live!” musical series, aired Wednesday night.
