In Hairspray it's 1962- the 50's are out and change is in the air. Baltimore's Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion - to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show" and overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity.
But can a plus-size trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of the heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television show without denting her 'do? Only in Hairspray!
