About Hairspray

The full-scale Broadway Production of HAIRSPRAY comes to Australia for the very first time!

HAIRSPRAY is the romantic comedy of dance-loving teenager Tracy Turnblad who has one dream: to dance on The Corny Collins Show. When her dream becomes reality, big-haired Tracy falls in love and finds friends in unexpected ways.

Winner of eight Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, Hairspray’s story is more effective and pertinent than ever; and with the brilliant original creative team at the helm, with original direction by Jack O’Brien (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and original choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots) – this joyous new Australian production of Hairspray directed by Matt Lenz with choreography re-created by Dominic Shaw, features the irrepressible feel-good songs “Good Morning, Baltimore”, “Big, Blonde and Beautiful” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat”.

Starring much-loved stage and screen performer Shane Jacobson as Edna Turnblad, Todd McKenney as Wilbur Turnblad, Rhonda Burchmore as Velma Von Tussle, Bobby Fox as Corny Collins, Asabi Goodman as Motormouth Maybelle and introducing Carmel Rodrigues as Tracy Turnblad.

Joining them for the 20th Anniversary Broadway Production will be Javon King as Seaweed J Stubbs, Donna Lee, Ayanda Dlada as Little Inez, Brianna Bishop as Amber von Tussle, Mackenzie Dunn as Penny Pingleton, Sean Johnston as Link Larkin and Todd Goddard.
