Take a look here to see if Hairspray (Touring) is showing somewhere nearby

It's 1962, the '50s are over and change is in the air. Baltimore's Tracy Turnblad is a big girl (with big hair and an even bigger heart) who has only one ambition ? to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance programme, The Corny Collins Show and, overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity.


But can this trendsetter in dance and fashion dethrone the show's spoilt reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link, and racially integrate a television show without denting her 'do?
