From the creative team who brought you Grease last year comes the Big Balor Summer Musical – Hairspray!
Hairspray tells the story of teenager Tracy Turnblad (Eimear Friel) who dreams of dancing on local TV dance programme The Corny Collins Show. Overcoming the objections of her mother Edna (Michael Duffy) Tracy wins a role on the show and becomes a celebrity overnight. She decides to use her new found position of influence to encourage integration and end the shows policy of discrimination.
With 13 Tony nominations, 8 Tony awards and a run of over 2,500 performances the original Broadway production of Hairspray proved one of the most popular musicals of recent times.
With a foot-tappin’ upbeat soundtrack of 1960’s style dance music and downtown rhythm and blues combined with a social message, Hairspray is the perfect showcase for this exceptionally talented young local cast.
You can’t stop the beat!
