COLORADO SPRINGS (April 19, 2012) – The Fine Arts Center’s Theatre Company will sweep you away to 1960s Baltimore with its season finale, Hairspray, a big, fat Broadway musical based on the John Waters’ 1988 film, May 10-June 3.
The 50’s are out … and change is in the air in this 2003 Tony-Award winning musical which has been delighting audiences across the country. Loveable plus-size heroine, Tracy Turnblad, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on the local TV dance program, “The Corny Collins Show.” Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program’s reigning princess, racially integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair? Hairspray contains music that will leave you dancing in the aisles.
