Fat, unorthodox Tracy Turnblad lives in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, and desires to perform on "The Corny Collins Show." She learns some of the black students' dance steps while serving detention with them and eventually makes it onto Corny's show. Tracy's overnight success gives her a system to espouse for racial equality in the media. Tracy is unceasingly 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 likable performances, the upbeat 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 regularly staged plays today. In spite of distinct differences, such as skin color, the uplifting and encouraging 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 Orpheum Theatre on Thursday 8th June 2023.
