HAIRSPRAY took Broadway by storm, winning 8 Tony awards. The production went on to win 4 Olivier awards in the West End, and multiple awards worldwide. This feel-good classic is back.

Featuring some of musical theatre’s biggest hit songs, Welcome to the 60s, You Can’t Stop the Beat, Good Morning Baltimore and many more. HAIRSPRAY is the hilarious, joyous, and inspiring musical for all!

Join big hearted Tracy Turnblad and her new friends the spirited Seaweed and his sister Little Inez, heartthrob Link Larkin and the resolute Motormouth Maybelle as they strive to change the world. HAIRSPRAY has wowed audiences in The West End and on Broadway and still packs a punch with its message of tolerance and the fight against racial discrimination.
