Hairspray, the hit musical based on John Waters' cult classic film is boppin' onto the Players Club of Swarthmore stage, and it's piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and infectious tunes. Set in 1960s Baltimore, Hairspray tells the story of lovable plus-sized teen Tracy Turnblad, a misfit who becomes a local celebrity by dancing on TV's Corny Collins Show. It's a dream come true for her, but she soon realizes some teens are kept off the show because of their skin color. Tracy's love of dancing and passion for justice transform her into an unlikely heroine, triumphing over both snotty teen queens and racial segregation. And she does it all without mussing a hair on her stylish 'do.
