HAIRSPRAY delighted audiences by sweeping them away to 1960’s Baltimore, where the 50’s are out — and change is in the air! Loveable plus-size heroine, Tracy Turnblad, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on the local TV dance program, “The Corny Collins Show.” Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program’s reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair?

Based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters (Rated PG  Parental Guidance Suggested)
Directed by Sydney Baird Childers
Book Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics Marc Shaiman
Lyrics Scott Wittman
