Hairspray is a feel-good stage musical and winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Score, as well as four Laurence Olivier Awards. An adapted film version was released in 2007 starring John Travolta, Michelle Pheiffer, Queen Latifah, Zac Efron and Nikki Blonsky.
It’s 1962 in Baltimore, Maryland, at the height of the Civil Rights Movement. Tracy Turnblad, a quirky, plus-sized teenager with a plus-sized hairdo has a big dream to dance on The Corny Collins Show on national television. She transforms into a local celebrity, but faces discrimination because of her weight, her choice in friends and her hairdo. Tracy becomes determined to use her influence to push for social change and racial integration in the show.
Hairspray’s timeless message is that everyone should be treated equally regardless of social, cultural and physical differences. With memorable songs such as Good Morning, Baltimore and You Can’t Stop The Beat, the show will have you tapping your feet and smiling for days!
