Hairspray the musical

Loudoun Centre Theatre: HAIRSPRAY

The big musical hit, winner of eight Tony Awards, that will sweep you away to 1960's Baltimore where the '50s are "so out" and change is in the air. Queen-sized teen Tracy Turnblad, who has all the right moves, turns her passion for dancing into a spot on the local TV dance program. Transformed into an overnight teen celebrity, Tracy teaches 1962 Baltimore a thing or two about integration and fair play. Watch as a larger-than-life adolescent sings and dances her way to her true love - all without denting her do!
