The Arthouse at 3Below Theaters Presents…

Hairspray Sing-Along

June 21 & 22

Grab Your Hairspray and Join The Nicest Kids In Town!

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.

This award­-winning, not-­to­-be­-missed musical about life in the ’60s is an absolute blast from the past. The Sing Along begins with a pre-show to warm up the audience and teach choreography from the movie so you can vie for a spot on the Corny Collins Show. You’ll also learn how to use your fun pack of props and vocalize so you’re ready to sing along to hits like “Good Morning, Baltimore”, “Nicest Kids In Town”, “I Can Hear The Bells”, “Big Blond and Beautiful” 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. 

Costumes Required! 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!

About Our Alongs

Back in 2009 when we hosted our first “along”, we had no idea we would go on to present hundreds of sing-along and quote-along events delighting tens of thousands of people throughout the state. Now that we have a theater to program 365 days a year, we have plenty of opportunities to book the best in interactive entertainment!

Event Highlights

Our interactive experiences begin with a pre-show led by our quirky and witty emcee who welcomes our enthusiastic audiences and introduces the interactive elements of each Sing-Along, Quote-Along or Special Event Experience. A Fun Pack is included as part of admission to enhance the participation experience. And, additional in-movie antics with even more giveaways and props are frequently part of the fun.


The pre-show starts at the published event time; no need to arrive any earlier than you normally would to get great food and drinks from our café, use the restrooms, and find your seats – and since seats are reserved in advance, you’ll save even more time. During the pre-show, our host will explain all the fun planned for the event including the fun pack included with your admission price, the on-screen lyrics (for sing-alongs), and other in-movie antics you can look forward to.

Costumes Strongly Encouraged!

Dressing up in a costume from the movie, or that ties in creatively, is always encouraged! We may even bring you up to showcase your costume as part of the pre-show festivities…and sometimes we even have costume contests for terrific prizes.
