Move over Baltimore! Austin is the new home for Hairspray — the soultastic, hair hoppin’, dance-til-you-drop musical! Big girl Tracy Turnblad has big ideas about teasin’ to stratospheric hairdo heights while dancing on the Corny Collins TV record hop countdown, and instigating a change that’s gonna come. When this equality cutie starts back-combing and bee-bopping across the racial divide, the bigots can’t stop the beat. John Waters’ campy film inspiration and ZACH Artistic Director Dave Steakley are a match made in ozone-depleting, the higher-the-hair-the-closer-to-God, Beehive heaven!

Live on Stage from June 16 through August 28 on ZACH’s Kleberg Stage, at the corner of Riverside Dr. & S. Lamar Blvd. Call (512) 476-0541, x1, or visit for performance information and reservations.
