Hairspray in Cardiff

Theatre Breaks to see Hairspray in Cardiff

Book your Cardiff theatre break nowLaugh a minute musical Hairspray Theatre Breaks bring some summer fun to the Donald Gordon theatre in August 2017.

The fabulous, over-the-top musical is based upon the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters which launched the career of American talk-show host Rikki Lake and saw an unrecognisable John Travolta don a dress as doting mother Edna Turnbald.

It’s 1962, the ’50s are out and change is in the air. Baltimore’’s Tracy Turnblad (played by Freya Sutton), a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion -– to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance programme, ‘The Corny Collins Show’ and, overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the programme’s reigning princess, win the heart of dreamboat Link Larkin, and integrate a television show without denting her ‘’do? Only in Hairspray! Welcome to the ’60s!

With lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Whittman – the duo who also co-wrote the music and lyrics for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ – their catchy songs take Tracy Turnblad from the the streets of Baltimore to a sound-stage of a ’60s-style tv dance show.
