You Can’t Stop The Beat in this big and bold musical about one girl’s inspiring dream to dance!

The 1950’s are out and change is in the air! HAIRSPRAY, winner of 8 Tony Awards including “Best Musical”, is piled bouffant high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. It’s 1962 Baltimore and lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one dream—to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and end the racial segregation of a TV network…all without denting her ‘do.

Hit songs include:
“I’m a Big Girl Now”, “The Nicest Kids in Town”,
“I Know Where I’ve Been” and the show-stopping “You Can’t Stop The Beat”
This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council,
a state agency, and the McLean County Arts Center.
