International smash hit musical comedy Hairspray comes to Cardiff later this month, kicking off its new UK tour at Wales Millennium Centre. And you could be there for free with this fantastic giveaway for a family ticket for the 5pm performance on Friday 25th August.
It’s Baltimore, 1962, and Tracy Turnblad is a big girl with big hair and an even bigger dream: to dance her way onto national TV, and into the heart of teen idol Link Larkin. Tracy’s audition makes her a local star and soon she is using her new-found fame to fight for integration. But can she win equality – and Link’s heart?
Hairspray the musical is based on the 1988 film of the same name, which starred Divine and Ricki Lake. The stage show opened to rave reviews on Broadway in 2002 and in London in 2007, with a film of the musical also released in 2007, starring John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer and James Marsden.
This new stage production is based on the 1988 film, featuring the iconic music and lyrics by Academy Award, Tony and Emmy winning duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman,with choreography by Olivier Award-winning Drew McOnie and direction from Paul Kerryson.
