School Production: Hairspray the Musical

Dear Parents and Students,

We are very pleased to announce the latest whole school production by Sha Tin College is Hairspray the musical, with book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan, music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman.

As always in College productions, there is a large cast, orchestra and crew of students and teaching staff supporting the production both on stage and behind the scenes.

In 1960s Baltimore, dance-loving teen Tracy Turnblad auditions for a spot on “The Corny Collins Show” and wins. She becomes an overnight celebrity, a trendsetter in dance, fun and fashion. Perhaps her new status as a teen sensation is enough to topple Corny’s reigning dance queen and bring racial integration to the show.

Hairspray is full of great characters and packed with well-loved songs such as ‘Good Morning Baltimore’, ‘Welcome to the 60’s’ and ‘Can’t Stop the Beat’.

Hairspray is coming to Sha Tin College on the 5th, 6th, and 7th of December at 7pm in the Main Hall. Tickets can be purchased at $80 per adult and $50 per student. If you would like to buy tickets then please fill in the attached slip below and return it during break time (10.50am – 11.15am) and lunchtime (12.20pm – 1.10pm).  If you would like to pay by school Octopus you may purchase the tickets from the Resource Centre. If you would like to pay with cash then you can purchase them from the desk on the ground floor.

If you have any further queries then please don’t hesitate to contact us and, on behalf of the team, we look forward to seeing you at Hairspray very soon!

Yours faithfully,
