Get swept away to 1960s Baltimore, where the 50s are out - and change is in the air! This summer, follow your own beat and watch a plump teenager become an overnight celebrity and then force change that'll break all the rules. The winner of eight Tony Awards, Hairspray will have you singing along to songs like "You Can’t Stop the Beat," "Big, Blonde and Beautiful," "Nicest Kids in Town" and "Welcome to the 60s." Don’t miss this larger-than-life Broadway musical hit that will make you dance and make you dream!
