From the cellblocks of Chicago to the streets of Baltimore, last year we were delighted to announce that our ’40th anniversary’ 2020 show was going to be HAIRSPRAY! An American musical comedy set in the swinging 60s, this international smash hit musical features the infectiously feel-good songs Good Morning Baltimore, Welcome to the Sixties, You Can’t Stop the Beat and Big, Blonde and Beautiful.

This was not meant to be as the show was first cancelled in March 2020, then September 2020 due to COVId-19. The committee made the very difficult decision not to try and reschedule the show again. You can read the full statement here.
