Winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score, Hairspray returns in an all new production to launch Charleston Stage’s 39th Season. Set in the rousing rock’n roll 60’s, Hairspray, from the creators of Catch Me If You Can, follows Tracy Turnblad, the incorrigible teen who opens the door wide for big girls and big hair and takes on Baltimore’s bullies and bigots with her big heart. With an American Bandstand worthy 60’s score, you won’t be able to stop the beat as you shake and shimmy to such hits as “Welcome to the Sixties”, “Big Blonde and Beautiful” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat”! 

Single tickets for Hairspray go on sale August 1. Season tickets now on sale.
