'Pleasantly Plump' teenager Tracy Turnblad's dreams come true when she becomes the newest star on a television dance programme. She is soon the most popular dancer and finds herself the focus of some dirty tricks at the hands of rival Amber Von Tussle and her pushy parents, but Tracy is more concerned with her campaign to have her black friends accepted and integrated into the all-white show.

Starring the legendary Divine and Ricki Lake, Hairspray is a camp masterpiece. A family friendly comedy set in 1960s Baltimore from infamous director John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Serial Mom, Cry Baby).
