About Hairspray at the Argyle Theatre, Babylon, NY

The setting is Baltimore, Maryland in 1962. Quirky plus-sized teenager Tracy Turnblad is obsessed with her dream of dancing on The Corny Collins Show.  

When Tracy is sent to detention one day with African-American students, they teach her their smooth dance moves. She auditions for the show and her new moves earn her a spot on the TV show.

An overnight sensation, Tracy must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate the show.

Even though she’s bullied by the network producer, Velma, and her daughter, Amber, Tracy has the support of Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (host of ‘Negro Day’). Together they triumph, and The Corny Collins Show is integrated.

After its first season on Broadway in 2002, Hairspray took home eight Tony® Awards in 2003 including Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Direction of a Musical. Hairspray is one of the most widely produced musicals today because of its wit, charm, and high-energy message of equal rights for all.
