Posted Mon Nov 11, 2013 at 06:00 AM PST by

John Waters' 1988 musical comedy will make its Blu-ray debut in March.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is set to release 'Hairspray' on Blu-ray on March 4.

Divine, Ricki Lake, Sonny Bono and Debbie Harry star in this musical comedy set in 1960s Baltimore from director John Waters. Overweight teenager Tracy Turnblad's (Lake) dreams come true when she becomes the newest star on a television dance program. She is soon the most popular dancer and finds herself the focus of some dirty tricks at the hands of rival Amber Von Tussle (Fitzpatrick) and her pushy parents but Tracy is more concerned with her campaign to have her black friends accepted on the all-white show.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $14.97.
