Change is in the air. It’s 1962 Baltimore and the story of geeky teen Tracy Turnblad - a big girl with a big heart, big dreams, a big stage mother and even bigger hair! When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden celebrity on the Corny Collins S how. Can Tracy really win the affections of teen heartthrob Link Larkin, can she dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, integrate a TV network and still have time to change the world?
Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously toe-tapping, tuneful songs, to be enjoyed by the whole family.
