The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire — to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” Her journey to fame and the fight for civil rights (“I Know Where I’ve Been”) and equality highlight this musical with fun and empowerment. Winner of eight Tony Awards in 2003, including Best Musical, Hairspray is a family-friendly production, filled with piled bouffant hairstyles, laughter, romance, and toe-tappin’ rhythmic songs.
