Theatre Alliance of Winston-Salem will present “Hairspray!” at 8 p.m. July 12, 13, 17-20, and 2 p.m. July 14 and 21 at 1047 Northwest Blvd.

“Hairspray,” winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant high with humor, romance and songs.

It’s 1962 in Baltimore, Md., and teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire — to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network.

Jessie Stewart plays Tracy. John C. Wilson is Link, and Gray Smith is Edna Turnblad. Jamie Lawson directs.

Tickets are $16-$18 at .
