One of the most popular musicals of the last decade is coming to The Fireside in a sparkling, all new, hilarious, and touching production. The Fireside is the first professional theatre in Wisconsin to produce the smash Broadway hit HAIRSPRAY. Itís 1962 and in the city of Baltimore young Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion Ė to dance. When she wins a spot on a popular TV dance show she is transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. But can she win the love of handsome Link Larkin and defeat the evil plans of teen princess Amber Von Tussle? HAIRSPRAY is a classic fairy tale told with humor and heart amid the exciting rhythms of 60ís rock and roll and featuring some of the most high-energy, spectacular dancing youíll ever see on the stage.
