Rare Productions theatre company will be showcasing Hairspray at The Haymarket in Basingstoke next month.
It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire – to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from a social outcast to a sudden star.
She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning teen queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her ‘do’. You can’t stop the beat in this big and bold musical about one girl’s inspiring dream to dance.
With classic songs such as Nicest Kids In Town, Good Morning Baltimore and Big, Blonde and Beautiful, the show promises to be a treat for all ages.
This lovable musical contains clever humour and witty one-liners throughout that appeals a wide range of ages.
