BOX OFFICE OPEN AT THE PREMIER HALL
MONDAY 29TH JULY
The international smash hit musical comedy Hairspray the Musical is heading to the Premier Hall this summer. Phoenix Productions travel back to Baltimore in 1962. Tracy Turnblad (Aoife Dempsey) is a big girl with big hair and an even bigger dream: to dance her way onto national TV, and into the heart of teen idol Link Larkin (Sam Rapoport). Tracy’s audition makes her a local star and soon she is using her new-found fame to fight for integration. But can she win equality – and Link’s heart – without denting her ‘do?
This Tony Award-winning musical continues to be one of the most widely produced musicals today, not only because of its wit and charm, but also because of the beautiful message of acceptance and progress that it portrays. The bright, energetic story of Tracy Turnblad teaches us all to look past the colour of one’s skin and fight for every human being’s equal rights.
‘Hairspray’ marks Phoenix Productions’ 21st musical since they began in 1998 performing traditional classics such as ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers’, ‘Oliver’ and ‘The Wiz’ as well as Broadway blockbuster hits such as ‘Les Miserables’, ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, ‘West Side Story’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and last year’s successful production of ‘Into the Woods’.
With a cast of over 50 young and talented teenagers under the professional eye of our production team Don’t miss this irresistible feel-good show that is guaranteed to have you dancing the night away. Get that hair up and book now!
