2014 - 2015
The 1950s are gone and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony awards including Best Musical, is set in Baltimore in 1962. Tracy Turnblad, a loveable, plus-size teen, Baltimorean has only one desire, to dance on the popular local TV dance program, The Corny Collins Show. She has a teenage obsession with one of its dancers Link Larkin and though she is rejected by producer Belma Von Tussle at the auditions, when Tracy shows off some moves at the Sophomore Hop, Corny Collins himself gives her a place on the show. As she lives her dream, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She can't, however stand the fact that the show won't allow integration and must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her "do"!
