Hairspray at the Hamilton Family Theatre Cambridge

Hairspray

The Broadway Musical
Book by Mark O’Donnell & Thomas Meehan
Music by Marc Shaiman
Lyrics by Scott Wittman & Marc Shaiman
Based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters

March 14 to April 8, 2018

Hamilton Family Theatre Cambridge

(formerly Dunfield Theatre Cambridge)

Get ready for something big with Hairspray, the musical-comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won eight Tony® Awards, including Best Musical.

It’s 1962 … the ’50s are out and change is in the air. Baltimore’s Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion – to dance! She wins a coveted spot on the popular Corny Collins Show, and overnight is transformed from social outcast to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television show … all without denting her ’do?

Don’t miss Broadway’s big musical hit!
