This smash-hit musical tells the story of Tracy Turnblad is a big girl with big hair and big dreams. She dreams of making it on the local TV dance show, winning the heart of teen heartthrob, Link Larkin, and bringing everyone together – whatever their race, size or hairdo. If she wants change, she’s really got to shake things up!

Featuring the infectiously feel-good songs Good Morning Baltimore, You Can’t Stop the Beat and Run and Tell That, this inspirational, fun-loving and fabulously uplifting musical sensation is back and bigger than ever.
