Fat, quirky Tracy Turnblad lives in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, and dreams of performing on "The Corny Collins Show." She learns some of the black students' dance routines while serving detention with them and eventually makes it onto Corny's show. Tracy's instant success gives her a system to promote for racial equality in the media. Tracy is repeatedly harassed and bullied by Velma, the network producer, and Amber, her popular but venomous daughter. With the help of teen heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (who hosts "Negro Day" on Corny's show), Tracy skillfully integrates "The Corny Collins Show." In addition to its humorous and powerful performances, the extremely positive message it conveys about accepting one's unique self and moving forward is a big reason why Hairspray, which won the Tony Award for Best Musical, is still one of the most frequently staged musicals today. In spite of physical differences, such as skin color, the uplifting and stimulating story of Tracy Turnblad calls us to fight for the rights of all people. This is why Hairspray is a must see for everyone! Nothing will make you happier than attending the Dolby Theatre on Friday 5th May 2023.
