Hairspray The Musical Tickets – London & UK Tour

Hairspray The Musical is touring the UK & Ireland from 2024

Look who’s back! Don’t miss the smash-hit, huge-hearted West End and Broadway musical Hairspray.

Featuring the infectiously feel-good songs Good Morning Baltimore, You Can’t Stop the Beat and Big, Blonde and Beautiful this inspirational, fun-loving and fabulously uplifting musical sensation is back and bigger than ever.

Based on John Waters’s cult movie, Hairspray has music and lyrics by multi award-winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Some Like it Hot, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), and this major new production is directed by Brenda Edwards and Paul Kerryson, with choreography by Drew McOnie.

Hairspray is touring the UK starting at Manchester’s Palace Theatre in July 2024, and coming to London’s New Wimbledon Theatre from 21 to 26 October 2024. Check out all UK tour dates below.
