Nelson Youth Theatre is delighted to present Hairspray - The Broadway Musical - winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical!

Move over Nelson! Tracy Turnblad, the girl with the big hair is on her way!

Come and enjoy this exuberant, energetic and colourful show! Hairspray will delight audiences by sweeping them away to 1960's Baltimore where change is in the air! Loveable plus-size heroine, Tracy Turnblad, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show". Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger than life adolescent manage to vanquish the programme's reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love without messing her hair?

With catchy songs and sparkling choreography, this show is a dazzling recreation of the fun that was the '60s. As The New York Times says, "If life were everything it should be, it would be more like Hairspray. It's irresistible!"
