|Hairspray The Musical - Wellington [Showtime]|
Don't miss Hairspray, Broadway’s musical-comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won eight 2003 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. On at the Opera House until 11 August 2012. Tickets on sale now from Ticketek.
Live comedy doesn’t get any bigger than this.
It's 1962, and pleasantly plump Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire: to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She now must use her newfound power to vanquish the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a TV network - all without denting her 'do.
As The New York Times says, “If life were everything it should be, it would be more like HAIRSPRAY. It’s irresistible!”
You can’t stop the beat!
