The international musical phenomenon Hairspray comes to the Playhouse presented by the Helderberg Academy of Theatre! After breaking box office records and delighting audiences in the West-End, on Broadway and on the big screen since 1988, this smash hit musical-comedy has quite the legacy, and now we're bringing it to the playhouse for the first time!
Welcome to the 60s, where everyone's grooving to a brand-new sound! Enter our vivacious heroine Tracy Turnblad, who has big hair, a big heart, and big dreams to dance her way onto national TV, and into the heart of teen idol Link Larkin. When Tracy becomes a local star, she is able to use her newfound fame to fight for liberation, tolerance, and interracial unity in Baltimore. But can she win equality - and Link's heart - without denting her 'do?
