Join the Wyvern Theatre for the annual Summer Youth Project production and see ‘The Nicest Kids in Town’ star in Hairspray.

Set in 1960s Baltimore, the musical Hairspray tells the story of overweight teenager Tracy Turnblad’s dream to dance on The Corny Collins Show. When Tracy wins a role on the local TV dance program and is launched to stardom, she uses her new found fame to campaign for integration between the black and white dancers. ...without denting her ‘do!

This legendary musical is full of sensational songs and toe-tapping tunes, including ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’ and ‘Big, Blonde and Beautiful’ and ‘Good Morning Baltimore’.

The aim of Summer Youth Project is to provide up to 250 local young people, aged 9 – 21, with the opportunity to work together in a professional theatre. The project culminates in five performances of a full-scale musical under the supervision of a highly skilled creative team including a professional Director, Choreographer, Musical Director, Musicians and Technical team all in less than 2 weeks!
