About Hairspray: It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network… all without denting her ‘do!


Young People's Concert Series is presented in partnership with Upper Darby High School and the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center, and is sponsored by Wells Fargo.

Observing the following list of theater manners will ensure a great performance experience. Because of the vital role the audience plays in live performances, please discuss these rules with your young people before bringing them to a performance.

  • Respect the performers, as they work hard to prepare for the show. Give your full attention and energy to these talented artists.
