'Hairspray' tickets go on sale Oct. 20
It's time to let your hair down and dance the night away! "Hairspray," Broadway's musical comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture, is coming to the Fargodome for its Fargo premiere!
"Hairspray" will play one performance only at the Fargodome on Sunday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale Monday, Oct. 20.
In "Hairspray" it's 1962--the '50s are out and change is in the air. Baltimore's Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion -- to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show," and, overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a plus-size trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television show without denting her 'do? Only in "Hairspray" -- welcome to the '60s!
"Hairspray," based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters (who served as a creative consultant), is the winner of eight 2003 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and is currently enjoying its fifth year on Broadway. The 2007 West End (London) production of "Hairspray" was nominated for a record-breaking 11 Olivier Awards and nabbed four, including the top category Best New Musical, and also won Best New Musical in all of Britain's other top awards programs, including the Evening Standard, Critic's Circle, and Whatsonstage Awards.
And now, the people of Fargo will be swept away to 1960s Baltimore in this international smash-hit musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter and romance -- and enough deliriously tuneful songs to fill a nonstop platter party. It's "Hairspray," live on stage, in living color!
