Civic Theatre presents


at the Tarkington

April 27 – May 12, 2018

Book by Mark O'Donnell & Thomas meehan
Music by Marc Shaiman
Lyrics by Scott Wittman & Marc Shaiman

The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! 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 uses her celebrity and newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and along with her friends and fans – change the world... all without denting her 'do! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance. Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman’s crisp pop score is full of deliriously tuneful songs including “Good Morning Baltimore”, “Without Love” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat”.
