A super-stylish megahit

Get ready to tease those bouffants, Hairspray is coming to Kansas City! A joyous and buoyant camp comedy classic, don't miss the story of eternally optimistic highschooler Tracy Turnblad as she follows her big dreams (and even bigger 'do) to become the star dancer on the Corny Collins Show, proving that talent comes in all shapes and hairstyles!

Originally finding life on celluloid with John Waters unforgettable 1988 cult-hit, Hairspray finally made it to the stage in 2002 and has never looked back. The winner of eight Tony-Awards, it's full-hearted story, plucky heroine and delicious soundtrack (including 'Good Morning Baltimore' and 'You Can't Stop the Beat' make this one an unmissable instant classic.
