You’ve seen the movie or at least recognize the name, but have you actually watched a live performance of the Broadway musical Hairspray? You’ll have your chance July 23rd – 31st when the North Carolina Theatre presents the dazzling performance at the Memorial Auditorium in downtown Raleigh.

If you’re unfamiliar with the story, prepare to be swept away to 1960s Baltimore, where change is in the air. Follow a loveable, plus-size heroine in her journey to integrate a television show and find true love… without ever ruining her hair. It is a joyful and upbeat story that will have you tapping your toes to the beat and singing along to the fun ’60s dance music and downtown rhythm.

Hairspray will be showing at the dates and times found here. Tickets are starting at only $25 and run up to $75 for the best seats in the auditorium. Seeing Hairspray anywhere else just wouldn’t be as convenient, so reserve your spot early before space runs out!
