Feelgood story about Tracy Turnblad features 'Welcome To The 60s', 'You Can't Stop The Beat' and 'The Nicest Kids in Town'
The shows start in September 2017, with a run at Sunderland's Empire Theatre between Mon 25 and Sat 30 Sep, before heading to Glasgow's King's Theatre in October and Aylesbury's Waterside Theatre in November.
Bristol, Edinburgh, Manchester and Milton Keynes play host in 2018, with the final dates taking place at Liverpool Empire between Mon 16 and Sat 21 Apr.
The quintessential feelgood show, Hairspray features the hit songs 'Welcome To The 60s', 'You Can't Stop The Beat' and 'The Nicest Kids in Town'.
It tells the story of Tracy Turnblad, who dreams of dancing her way onto national TV. Set in Baltimore in 1962, it's a story about prejudice and equality, and it never fails to put a smile on the face.
