Can a girl with big dreams (and even bigger hair) change the world? Yes, she sure can– with lots of Hairspray, the uproarious musical from the brilliant mind of John Waters. Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy phenomenon is back on tour. Join 16-year-old Tracy Turnblad in 1960s Baltimore as she sets out to dance her way onto TV’s most popular show, The Corny Collins Show. 

Featuring the beloved score of hit songs including “Welcome to the ‘60s,” “Good Morning Baltimore,” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” Hairspray is “fresh, winning, and deliriously tuneful!” according to The New York Times. Don’t miss this “exhilaratingly funny and warm-hearted musical comedy” (The New Yorker).
