A new musical based on the 1988 John Waters film of the
same name. Tracy Turnblad is obsessed with The Corny
Collins Show and one of its dancers, Link Larkin. Though
rejected by producer Belma Vom Tussle at auditions, when
Tracey shows off some moves at the Sophomore Hop, Corny
Colins gives her a place on the show. Tracey is soon
launched to stardom, but can't stand that the show won't
allow integration and does everything in her power to
make it happen.
