Hairspray (July 2012)

HAIRSPRAY to Be Presented in Exclusive New England Engagement – Summer 2012 by New Bedford Festival Theatre.

“If life were everything it should be, it would be more like HAIRSPRAY.”
The New York Times

It’s time to let your hair down and dance the night away!  HAIRSPRAY, Broadway’s musical comedy phenomena, is coming to the South Coast area July 20-22, 26-29, 2012
presented by New Bedford Festival Theatre.  Audiences will be swept away to the 1960’s in this international smash-hit musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter and romance – and enough deliriously tuneful songs and fabulous dancing to sweep anyone off their feet.

Tickets for this winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, are on sale now at the Zeiterion Performing Arts box office – 508.994.2900 or zeiterion.org.  Group discounts are available by calling 508.994.2900 x 23.

In HAIRSPRAY it’s 1962 and Baltimore’s Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with an even bigger heart, has only one passion – to dance on the Corny Collins TV Dance Show (very much like the Dick Clark Show.)  She wins a spot and overnight changes from an outsider to a teen celebrity.  She leads a revolt to unseat the show’s Teen Queen, win the love of heart-throb Link Larkin and integrate the television show all without denting her ‘do!  Only in HAIRSPRAY!  Welcome to the ‘60’s!

Based on John Waters’ film, HAIRSPRAY has won every major theatrical award around the world!  Audiences for this family friendly musical hit have found themselves practically dancing in the aisles because “You Can’t Stop the Beat” of the infectious score, exciting dances, and the message of acceptance this joyous musical offers to all.
Audiences can expect the talented performers, professional settings and costumes, and expert sound and lighting that Festival Theatre is known for.
