Fat, unorthodox Tracy Turnblad lives in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, and dreams of performing on "The Corny Collins Show." She gets to know some of the black students' dance steps while serving detention with them and eventually makes it onto Corny's show. Tracy's immediate success gives her a system to endorse for racial equality in the media. Tracy is repeatedly harassed and bullied by Velma, the network producer, and Amber, her popular but vengeful daughter. With the help of teen heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (who hosts "Negro Day" on Corny's show), Tracy efficaciously integrates "The Corny Collins Show." In addition to its humorous and personable performances, the extremely positive 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 shows today. In spite of minor differences, such as skin color, the uplifting and exciting story of Tracy Turnblad calls us to fight for the rights of all people. This is why Hairspray is a must watch for everyone! Nothing will make you happier than coming to the Paramount Theatre on Sunday 9th April 2023.
