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

Following the enormous success of the previous tours, Hairspray UK Tour, the big, bold and beautiful musical comedy is back in 2020.

The Hairspray UK Tour will be directed by Paul Kerryson, with choreography by Drew McOnie.

The show, with music and lyrics by Academy Award, Tony and Emmy-winning duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, will have musical direction by Ben Atkinson, sound design by Ben Harrison, lighting design by Philip Gladwell and sets and costume design by Takis.

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.

Hairspray is a musical based on the 1988 film of the same name which starred Divine and Ricki Lake by cult filmmaker John Waters. With music and lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman Hairspray originally opened to rave reviews on Broadway in 2002 and subsequently won eight Tony Awards. 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.

PLEASE NOTE: This touring production of Hairspray IS NOT the productiom running at the London Coliseum (with Michael Ball).
