About

Broadway's Tony Award(r)-winning musical-comedy phenomenon takes you back to 1962 Baltimore, as 16-year-old Tracy Turnblad sets out to dance her way onto T.V.'s most popular show. Can a big girl with big dreams--and even bigger hair!--change the world and still have time to win the boy she loves? This mega-hit is piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance, and enough deliriously tuneful new songs to fill a nonstop platter party. It's the winner of eight 2003 Tony Awards(r), including Best Musical. As the New York Times says, "If life were everything it should be, it would be more like Hairspray. It's irresistible!"

Starring Keala Settle as Tracy Turnblad and John Pinette as Edna Turnblad.
Also starring Jane Blass, Charlotte Crossley, J.P.Dougherty, Susan Henley, Serge Kushnier, Paul McQuillan, Alan Mingo, Jr.,Kahilah Rivers, John Salvatore, Chandra Lee Schwartz, Worth Williams and Stephen DeRosa plus an additional 21 dancers and singers!
