Hairspray the MusicalBig hair! Big heart! Big dreams! The joyous, uplifting and hilarious musical is back!
You can’t stop OUR beat- HAIRSPRAY is BACK ON TOUR – so run and tell that!
The international musical phenomenon Hairspray returns to the Grand Opera House in November this year! After breaking box office records and delighting audiences in the West-End, on Broadway and on the big screen since 1988, this smash-hit musical-comedy has quite the legacy, and now it’s heading back out on tour around the UK and Ireland.
Welcome to the 60s, where everyone’s grooving to a brand-new sound! Enter our vivacious heroine Tracy Turnblad, who has big hair, a big heart, and big dreams to dance her way onto national TV, and into the heart of teen idol Link Larkin. When Tracy becomes a local star, she is able to use her newfound fame to fight for liberation, tolerance, and interracial unity in Baltimore. But can she win equality – and Link’s heart – without denting her ‘do?
Starring Brenda Edwards as Motormouth Maybelle and Norman Pace as Wilbur Turnblad, this fun-filled, feel-good show is bursting with show-stopping numbers, dazzling costumes, and dizzying dance-routines that you can’t help but shimmy to!
Featuring some of musical theatre’s biggest and best hit songs, including Welcome To The 60s, You Can’t Stop The Beat, Good Morning Baltimore and so many more, Hairspray is the hilarious, joyous, and uplifting musical that everyone needs right now!
