Kilworth House Theatre are delighted to present Hairspray for their upcoming
2023 Theatre Season. This is a unique production of Hairspray as it will be the
first outdoor staging of Hairspray in the UK!

Producer Celia Mackay is delighted to welcome the Cast of Hairspray, Director
& Choreographer Lee Proud, Set & Costume Designer Paul Farnsworth,
Lighting Designer Jason Taylor, Sound Designer Chris Whybrow, Musical
Director & Supervisor Michael Bradley, and Casting Director Anne Vosser to
Kilworth House Theatre for the first outdoor theatre staging of Hairspray in the
UK which will run for 52 performances this summer.

The 1950’s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony
Awards, including Best Musical and nominated for 10 Olivier Awards, 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!

Starting Tuesday 27th June until Sunday 6th August, Hairspray is the ultimate
feel-good family musical comedy filled with show-stopping numbers that are
guaranteed to get you tapping your feet and shimmying in your seat! Featuring
some of musical theatre’s greatest hits, including ‘Good Morning Baltimore’,
‘The Nicest Kids in Town’, ‘Welcome to the 60’s’, ‘I Know Where I’ve Been’ and
the iconic Hairspray hit ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’!

Director & Choreographer Lee Proud says “Hairspray is without doubt one of
the most uplifting and joyous musicals ever written and Its messages of
inclusion and equality resonate more today than ever before. We have
gathered an incredible cast and we can’t wait to see you all at Kilworth House
Theatre for an unforgettable night of entertainment.”
Hairspray is the hilarious, sparkling, and uplifting feel-good family musical that
everyone needs to see right now!
