Follow Tracy Turnblad at She Transforms Into A Shining Star in Hairspray

Theatre Tulsa's Broadway Bound students (ages 13-17) take on "Hairspray," one of the most hilarious shows in modern musical theatre. Teenager Tracy Turnblad's life in 1962 turns upside-down when she wins a role on her favorite TV show! 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!

Overnight, Tracy transforms from a nobody into a star, and uses her newfound influence to advocate for racial integration on the television show. Tracy faces scrutiny and bullying from the network producer, Velma, and her popular, but vicious, daughter, Amber. With the help of the teenage heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle, Tracy overcomes the odds and succeeds in her mission to integrate The Corny Collins Show.

Hairspray, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. We hope that you join us at John H. William’s Theatre on Sunday, July 22 to see this charming musical!
