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?

Brenda Edwards, who has previously played ‘Motormouth’ Maybelle in three tours of Hairspray, will co-direct the new production alongside Paul Kerryson (Chicago, Sweeney Todd; Curve Theatre) with choreography by Drew McOnie.

Casting for the new Hairspray tour is to be announced.

The musical made its debut on Broadway in 2002 and features a book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan with music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
