Hairspray The Broadway Musical Presented by Walkerville Centre for the Creative Arts
May 3 @ 7:00 pm - May 5 @ 10:00 pm
Walkerville Centre for the Creative Arts presents Hairspray, the Broadway musical based on the New Line Cinema film, inside the Walkerville Collegiate Institute Walkerville Auditorium on April 27-29 & May 3-5, 2018.
You can’t stop the beat in this big and bold musical about one girl’s inspiring dream to dance.
The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs.
It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network… all without denting her ‘do!

The Walkerville Centre for the Creative Arts was established in 1989 as a place to give students, gifted in the arts, the opportunity to work in a more intense atmosphere, with students of equal calibre and with the same interests and to learn from a staff of people with a real expertise in each area.
