WHEN: 26th July 2013 to 10th August 2013
Winning over 30 major awards worldwide and acclaimed as ‘the musical with everything’, the whole family will love the Riverside Theatre's production of Hairspray!
Hairspray stars Australian entertainment legend Jon English in the role of Edna Turnblad. Jon has starred in musicals, drama and comedy, released 15 albums, written musicals and scores for film and television, as well as touring internationally with his band. His career highlights include playing Judas in the original production of Jesus Christ Superstar, his Logie Award-winning performance as Jonathon Garret in the television mini-series Against the Wind (for which he also wrote and performed the series theme song, ‘Six Ribbons’), playing Pirate King in the Pirates Of Penzance, and the lead role of Bobby Rovers in the hit television comedy series Altogether Now.
The show also sees Helpmann Award nominated performer Wayne Scott Kermond (Singin’ In The Rain, Hot Shoe Shuffle) return to Packemin in the role of Wilbur Turnblad following his starring role as Fagin in Oliver! CLE MORGAN (Hairspray, Australian Idol) reprises her performance as Motormouth Maybelle from the recent national tour of Hairspray, and talented newcomer Jessica Rookeward plays the loveable Tracy Turnblad.
With all that musical talent and high hair, Hairspray is set to be a musical experience not to be missed!
