PlayMakers Repertory Company's Summer Youth Conservatory presents the multiple-Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, "Hairspray." It's 1962, Baltimore. Plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has one desire to dance on “The Corny Collins Show." After getting her big break, she quickly sees behind the TV dance party's glossy veneer. Can Tracy tackle the show’s racial inequality, dethrone the reigning Teen Queen and win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin – all without denting her 'do?
