Why See Hairspray?
Welcome to the Sixties!
Go back in time to the Sixties, a time of social change and fast-moving development, as we join aspiring dancer Tracy Turnblad on her journey to fame! Or local TV, anyway. This firm fan favorite has won a stunning eight Tony Awards, and is based on the original screenplay by avant-garde film-maker John Waters. This family-friendly musical is piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.
What is it about?
Set in Baltimore in 1962, Hairspray is the story of pleasantly plump teen, Tracy Turnblad, who does whatever it takes to fulfill her lifelong dream of appearing on the popular Corny Collins Show. Can this plus-size trendsetter vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin, and end racial segregation on TV without denting her fabulous 'do? Originally a cult classic John Waters film, Hairspray was remade in 2007, starring John Travolta and Michelle Pfeiffer. The remake, which was nominated for a Golden Globe, was one of the top five highest grossing movie musicals of all time.
Opening night: 5 July 2017
Suitable for ages 10+
