Musical comedy. Winner of eight Tony Awards® including Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Direction and Best Male and Female Lead to name a few, it's "Hairspray!" The year is 1962 and Baltimore's Tracy Turnblad is going to do whatever it takes to dance her way onto TV's most popular show. Can a big girl with big dreams--and even bigger hair--turn the whole town around and still have time to win the boy she loves? Don't miss this dancing, romancing musical-comedy treat based on John Waters' 1988 film classic.
The reviewers all agree: this is a show you do not want to miss!
“The talent and creativity displayed here completely changes the expectation of what community theaters can offer. There’s certainly nothing “little” about RLT anymore.” -- Roy Dicks, The News & Observer
“RLT has a major hit with Hairspray, and it receives an unqualified recommendation.” -- Allan R. Hall, CVNC
“...RLT's production of Hairspray will most certainly leave you dancing in your seats all night long.” -- Jeffrey Karasides, Broadway World Raleigh
“...there isn’t a single song or a single moment that’s anything less than enjoyable.” -- Susie Potter, Triangle Arts & Entertainment
This project is supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
