.Hairspray at Center for the Performing Arts

What’s it like to be a girl in 1960s Baltimore with big hair and even bigger dreams? Well, with John Waters’s 1988 classic Hairspray—which has since become a hit on Broadway and in London’s West End—audiences can join in 16-year-old Tracy Turnblad’s dreams, all while she attempts to change the world. The musical provides audiences the chance to twist and shout, indulge in popular tunes and learn some great lessons about friendship, popularity and self discovery. The all-new touring production is great for the whole family and will help bring a new generation back to the theater.
