Hairspray

Hairspray, one of America’s favorite Broadway musicals, comes to the Playhouse this summer. Based on John Waters' 1988 film, Hairspray follows spunky, curvaceous teen Tracy Turnblad aspiring to become a famous performer. After winning an opportunity to dance on her favorite TV program, The Corny Collins Show, Tracy is swept up into a celebrity cyclone of social pressures and prejudices. Set in 1960s Baltimore, Hairspray confronts issues of race, beauty and confidence. Shaking up the city, Tracy battles racism and social prejudice as she tries to use her new celeb status to advocate for the causes dearest to her, most of all racial integration. This musical’s award-winning witty script, touching lyrics and catchy melodies have made it one of the most renowned plays in recent history.
