It’s 1962 in Baltimore, Maryland, and the lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire – to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to de-throne the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her ‘do! Not only is Hairspray a clever social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960s, it is also a joyous tribute to an era past, and an intelligent, warm and joyous musical comedy you’ll not soon forget!
