Welcome to the ’60s and the story of big haired, big girl Tracy Turnblad who just wants to dance. She does all that and more in this technicolor knockout: a movie musical of the Broadway hit based on the John Waters film.
Your journey to The Corny Collins Show starts when you enter a theatre full of fans who love the movie as much as you or who’ve never seen the film but know to expect a great time at our events no matter what! Our host will get you warmed up so you can singalong to such memorable tunes as “Good Morning, Baltimore”, “I Can Hear The Bells”, and of course, the title song. After praising those with “inappropriate hair heights”, she’ll explain how to use all the props in your Fun Pack. Then it’s time to do the “strickin’ chicken” before you “run and tell that” with Tracy and her friends…find out who’s big, blonde and beautiful…join in the march for equal rights belting out one of the most riveting anthems on the movie musical screen. This award-winning, not-to-be-missed musical about life in the ’60s is an absolute blast from the past.
Okay, not required but strongly encouraged! Keep it simple with big, big hair or go all out with friends and make matching 60s costumes. Want to be a true 3Below Diva? Get creative and do something completely original: dress up as a can of hairspray or a Baltimore crab!
Seating begins at 30 minutes prior to showtime. The event starts at the published start time and includes a 20 minute audience warm-up; there is no need to arrive early for the “pre-show.”
