Fat, quirky Tracy Turnblad lives in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, and aspires to perform on "The Corny Collins Show." She gets to know some of the black students' choreography while serving detention with them and eventually makes it onto Corny's show. Tracy's overnight success gives her a system to promote for racial equality in the media. Tracy is continuously harassed and bullied by Velma, the network producer, and Amber, her popular but nasty daughter. With the help of teen heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (who hosts "Negro Day" on Corny's show), Tracy fruitfully integrates "The Corny Collins Show." In addition to its humorous and personable 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 musicals today. In spite of physical differences, such as skin color, the uplifting and empowering 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 Bass Concert Hall on Saturday 17th June 2023.
