Stage 62 Presents Hairspray!
In Baltimore, Maryland, in 1962, plump teenager Tracy Turnblad's dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local television dance program, alongside teen heartthrob Link Larkin. When she gets put in detention with Seaweed Stubbs and other African-American students in her high school, they teach her some of their dance moves, and her new-found groove wins her a spot on Cornys show. Tracy becomes a celebrity overnight and uses her influence to advocate for racial integration on the TV show. She faces plenty of interference from the shows narrow-minded producer, Velma Von Tussle, and her popular but vicious daughter, Amber. But Tracy has lots of allies on her side, including her parents Edna and Wilbur Turnblad, best friend Penny Pingleton, love interest Link, and show host Corny Collins, not to mention Seaweed, his little sister Inez, and his mother Motormouth Maybelle, the host of Negro Day on Cornys show. Tony Award-winning Hairspray continues to be one of the most widely produced musicals today, not only because of its irresistible songs and high-energy dances, but also because of the beautiful message of acceptance. Tracy Turnblad and her friends teach us all to look past the color of ones skin and fight for every human beings equal rights.

Music by Marc Shaiman; Lyrics by Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman; Book by Thomas Meehan, Mark ODonnell. Based on the New Line Cinema film, written and directed by John Waters.

Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
