From the 31st of May to the 3rd of June Newlands College is putting on the Broadway smash-hit Hairspray! Tickets are near sold out for the Tuesday (31st) and Friday (3rd), but lots of spots are available for Wednesday & Thursday nights. The show is full of high energy, catchy music, and a record cast of 87 students (including 14 Year 9's). Tickets can be booked at school reception or through any cast member. In my experience Newlands College musicals are a not to be missed event. I'll be working backstage throughout the run and I'll look forward to seeing some familiar faces in the crowd! Come and see these exceptionally talented students transport you to Baltimore of the 1960's; a time of racial discrimination, live-televised music shows, teenage rebellion, and a whole lot of Ultra Clutch Hairspray!
The photos below show a few snaps from rehearsals, you'll have to come along in a few weeks to see the real thing!
