About The Event
We are so pleased to be offering our Light UP members and Summer Youth Project participants this exclusive opportunity to head to the 60's together and back into the theatre! Parents and students are invited to attend this amazing Opening Night performance before we hit the stage ourselves in August for our SYP performance of Hairspray, Jr. It will be a great chance to meet your fellow cast members, parents and to see the show ahead of our rehearsal, talk about a great way to get inspired. Tickets are offered at the reduced rate of £42.50 (this includes a small transaction fee) but if 20 or more book on, it will go down to £41.50 which would be a £5 savings off the face value of the tickets. There is no need to pay now, instead you will be invoiced for the amount of tickets requested, further information will be provided upon confirming your RSVP.
The international musical phenomenon Hairspray returns to Southampton! After breaking box office records and delighting audiences in the West-End, on Broadway and on the big screen since 1988, this smash hit musical-comedy has quite the legacy, and now it's heading back out on tour around the UK and Ireland.
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?
This fun-filled, feel good show is bursting with show-stopping numbers, dazzling costumes, and dizzying dance-routines that you can’t help but shimmy too!
Featuring some of musical theatre’s biggest and best hit songs, including Welcome To The 60s, You Can’t Stop The Beat, Good Morning Baltimore and so many more, Hairspray is the hilarious, joyous, and uplifting musical that everyone needs right now!
