Combined Colleges' Musical
Presented by St Mary’s College with St Edmund’s College
St Mary’s and St Edmund’s Colleges have a long tradition of producing excellent Combined Colleges’ Musicals over the past 20 years. This year St Mary’s College is producing Hairspray – The Broadway Musical, an American musical with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman and a book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan, based on the 1988 John Waters film of the same name.
Set in early 1960s Baltimore where the 50s are out and change is in the air, Hairspray tells the story of Tracy Turnblad, a pleasantly plump heroine with a passion for dancing and the local TV dance program, The Corny Collins Show. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program’s reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair?
