It’s 1962, and pleasantly plump Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire – to be on television dancing on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star, but she must use her newfound power to vanquish the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a television network – all without denting her ‘do!
The whole family will love Hairspray, Broadway’s big fat musical-comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
So prepare to take a journey back to the swingin’ 60’s when Harvest Rain presents the record breaking, largest production ever of everyone’s favourite musical, HAIRSPRAY. With a cast starring Simon Burke as Edna Turnblad, Christine Anu as Motormouth Maybelle, and Wayne Scott Kermond as Wilbur Turnblad, alongside a core cast of 30 professional performers and a large ensemble of over 500 local amateur performers, this major musical event is not to be missed!
