The story of a chubby Baltimore teen who finds fame on a local TV dance show and, in the process, brings integration to the airwaves
Here at the Thespis Theatrical Costumiers design studio many of the Hairspray costumes are original or designed in house for this spectacle of a show.
From the very start we capture 1960s Baltimore fashion on stage with our Hairspray costumes.
There are a plethora of fantastic vintage costumes appearing in the musical adaptation of John Waters’ Hairspray movie.
The heroine’s mother, Edna Turnblad, a middle-aged Baltimore housewife, will wear “Mumsie style housecoat.” When Edna and her daughter, Tracy, get a makeover, they’ll sport matching feather trimmed mother & daughter outfits.
There are over 100-plus costumes for Hairspray that can be mixed and matched to suit your show and for authenticity many are vintage 1960`s.
We can supply for your show footwear which gives that all round completed look that is so often missing or overlooked but is sure to be noted by the critics.
As Tracy and her mother change and grow during the course of the musical, their outfits evolve too.
This iconic musical attacks issues of racism, inequality, stereotyping and political activism with big hair, big bodies, big dreams and undeniable spirit.
Living in 1962 blue-collar Baltimore, teenage dance enthusiast Tracy Turnblad defies her mother’s hard working realism and auditions for the wildly popular Corny Collins Show. Rejected by egotistic producer Velma von Tussle and her teen queen daughter Amber for her weight, Tracy ends up catching Corny’s attention at a local school dance with her energetic moves.
Once on the show, Tracy takes Baltimore by storm, eventually winning over heartthrob Link Larkin and mobilizing the city’s youth to fight television segregation. With the support of her shy, overprotected friend Penny Pingleton, “Negro Day” star dancer Seaweed and his show host mother Motormouth Maybelle, Tracy re-inspires her mother Edna’s confidence and forcefully integrates the nationally aired Miss Hairspray Competition.
