You can't stop the beat in this big and bold musical about one girl's inspiring dream to dance.
This fun-loving new musical delights audiences by sweeping them away to 1960's Baltimore, where the 50's are out-- and change is in the air. Lovable plus-size heroine, Tracy Turnblad, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show." Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program's reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair?
