The big hit musical, winner of eight Tony Awards, that will sweep you away to 1960s Baltimore where the ’50s are “so out” and change is in the air. Hairspray is a blockbuster winner with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs. Queen-sized teen Tracy Turnblad, who has all the right moves, turns her passion for dancing into a spot on the local TV dance program. Transformed into an overnight teen celebrity, Tracy teaches 1962 Baltimore a thing or two about integration and fair play. Watch as a larger-than-life adolescent vanquishes the reigning princess and her conniving mother, singing and dancing her way to her true love — all without mussing her perfectly coiffed hair!
