Teenager Tracy Turnblad has a dream: to coax her hair into the biggest ‘do’ ever, and to dance with “the nicest kids in town” on the fabulous Corny Collins TV show. Aided and abetted by her dizzy friend Penny, she squeezes her way into the world of showbiz, to find out it isn’t quite what she expected.
Falling foul of both her school principal and vicious Velma, the TV producer, Tracy accidentally stumbles into the rich underground world of black soul music and dance and wants to know “why can’t we all dance together”.
‘Hairspray’ bounds onto the stage with irrepressible energy and optimism; full of great characters like Tracy’s Mum, the outrageous plus-plus-sized Edna (a role famously played on the London stage by Michael Ball); lively dance numbers and great songs, ranging from Motormouth Maybelle’s heartfelt “I Know Where I’ve Been”, to cheerful “Good Morning Baltimore” and upbeat “You Can’t Stop The Beat”.
CBW Youth Theatre are well known locally for their energy, enthusiasm and professionalism.
Book early to see the show that will put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step!
