More Information


It’s 1962 and change is in the air. Baltimore’s Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion — to dance. Don’t miss the swingingly-soulful musical phenomenon, Hairspray. The lively cast of characters come alive with the upbeat sounds of “Good Morning Baltimore,” “Welcome to the ’60s” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat.” You will fall in love with this exciting tuner that inspired a major motion picture and won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
