The Stage

Welcome to the 60s, where everyone’s grooving to a brand-new sound! Enter Tracy Turnblad, with big hair, big heart, and big dreams to dance her way onto national TV. On her journey to become accepted, Tracy befriends Link Larkin the teen idol, Seaweed, Little Innez and Motormouth Maybelle who stand with her to fight intolerance, bigotry and racism as they strive to bring unity to the city of Baltimore. Can the new girl in town help win equality and Link Larkin’s heart?

This fun-filled, feel-good show is bursting with show-stopping numbers, dazzling costumes, and dizzying dance-routines that you can’t help but shimmy too!

Featuring some of musical theatre’s biggest and best hit songs, including Welcome To The 60s, You Can’t Stop The Beat, Good Morning Baltimore and so many more, Hairspray is the hilarious, joyous, and uplifting musical for all!
