Hairspray (MainStage/All-Ages) - Spring 2017

By Windy City Performs (other events)

18 Dates Through Apr 30, 2017

WELCOME TO THE 60'S!  Hairspray is our Spring MainStage show, featuring some of Chicago's finest professional actors, as well as auditioned Teens and Youth. The 1950’s are out and change is in the air!  Hairspray, winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs. It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire — to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her ‘do!

Directed by Jordan Richardson
