Grand Blanc High School Performing Arts Department

Broadway Musical Comedy "Hairspray" LIVE on stage at Grand Blanc High School

Hairspray is a musical with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman and a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, based on the 1988 film Hairspray. The songs include 1960s-style dance music and "downtown" rhythm and blues in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland. Teenager Tracy Turnblad's dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance program based on the real-life Buddy Deane Show. When Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight, and meets a colorful array of characters. She then launches a campaign to integrate the show. Hairspray is a social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960s.
