About the Show

A new musical based on the 1988 John Waters film of the same name.

Story: Tracy Turnblad is obsessed with The Corny Collins Show and one of its dancers, Link Larkin. Though rejected by producer Belma Vom Tussle at auditions, when Tracey shows off some moves at the Sophomore Hop, Corny Colins gives her a place on the show. Tracey is soon launched to stardom, but can't stand that the show won't allow integration and does everything in her power to make it happen.
