Hairspray 6th – 9th May 2015
The Smash hit Broadway Musical HAIRSPRAY. Winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, HAIRSPRAY is a big, bouncy bouffant of a musical, piled high with laughter, romance and deliriously joyous, toe-tapping, heart-warming, groove-shaking songs.
The hit show has delighted audiences around the world by sweeping them away to 1960’s Baltimore USA, where the 50’s are out and change is in the air.
Loveable plus sized teenager Tracy Turnblad wants to land a part as a dancer on the Corny Collins TV show… but can she achieve her dream of stardom, fight off evil Amber for the crown of Miss Hairspray and win the heart of local heartthrob, Link Larkin while taking a stand against racial segregation? For the big girl with the big heart, anything is possible.
An amateur production by arrangement with Joseph Weinberger Limited. Music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman and a book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan, based on the 1988 John Waters film Hairspray.
