Jon Tsouras and the Nicest Kids in Town in Hairspray UK Tour

Following the enormous success of the 2015-16 UK tour of the international smash hit Hairspray will embark on a major UK tour in August 2017.  This big, bold and beautiful musical comedy will be presented at over 30 leading venues across the UK and Ireland, opening at the Cardiff Millenium Centre as its headline Summer production.

Hairspray will be directed by Paul Kerryson, with choreography by Drew McOnie. Click here for Hairspray UK Tour casting

The show, with music and lyrics by Academy Award, Tony and Emmy-winning duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, will tour to: Cardiff, Dartford, Dublin, Blackpool, Sunderland, Glasgow, Birmingham, Leicester, Buxton, Belfast, Aylesbury, Carlisle, Bradford, Guildford, Plymouth, Southampton, Sheffield, Aberdeen, Nottingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Inverness, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Liverpool, Hull, Llandudno, Canterbury and Southend.

It’s Baltimore 1962, where Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, is on a mission to follow her dreams and dance her way onto national TV. Tracy’s audition makes her a local star and soon she is using her new-found fame to fight for equality, bagging local heartthrob Link Larkin along the way.

The production opened in London at the Shaftesbury Theatre in 2007 and won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Best Actor in a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical and Best Performance in a Supporting Role. Proving to be an international success, Hairspray has also opened in South Africa, Japan, South Korea, China and Dubai. Following the musical’s phenomenal success on stage, a film of the musical was released in 2007 which starred John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer and James Marsden.
