Welcome to the 1960s where Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has a big desire to dance on the popular 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) without mussing her hair?  Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, this Broadway sensation is filled with show-stopping tunes including You Can't Stop the Beat, Without Love, and Good Morning Baltimore.
