You can't stop the beat in this big and bold musical about one girl's inspiring dream to dance.

The 1950's are out and change is in the air! HAIRSPRAY, winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.

It's 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire -- to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her 'do!

HAIRSPRAY is ideal for a large cast of strong singers and dancers. It provides great opportunities in terms of set design, costuming, and lighting choices.

Dubbed by many as “the waltz musical,” all of the songs in A Little Night Music are written in variations of three-quarter time.
