HAIRSPRAY on May 3-8, 2022
You Can’t Stop the Beat! HAIRSPRAY, Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy phenomenon is back on tour and headed to Hershey Theatre on May 3-8, 2022.
HAIRSPRAY is the story of Tracy Turnblad, a teenager with big hair and big dreams. Despite the objections of her stay-at-home mother, Edna, Tracy becomes an overnight sensation when her dance moves win her a role on The Corny Collins Show, a teen dance show on local TV. Tracy’s talent also wins the heart of Link Larkin, the show’s dreamboat. Her success stirs the envy of Amber Von Tussle and her mother Velma, who see Tracy as Amber’s rival for the title of Miss Teenage Hairspray.
But Tracy has bigger plans! Before long she's leading a campaign to integrate the all-white Corny Collins Show. Tracy teams up with Seaweed, an African American boy who shares her passion for dancing. And she has the help of Seaweed’s mother, Motormouth Maybelle — a record store owner who shares Tracy’s vision of social justice. Together, they finally break down the color barrier that divides the show’s dance floor and prove that we all dance to the same beat.
Featuring the beloved score of hit songs including “Welcome to the 60’s,” “Good Morning Baltimore” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” HAIRSPRAY is “fresh, winning, and deliriously tuneful!” (The New York Times).
This all-new touring production will reunite Broadway’s award-winning creative team led by Director Jack O’Brien and Choreographer Jerry Mitchell to bring HAIRSPRAY to a new generation of theater audiences. Don’t miss this “exhilaratingly funny and warm-hearted musical comedy” (The New Yorker).
ANASTASIA on July 26-31, 2022
The romantic and adventure-filled new musical ANASTASIA is at home in Hershey at last on July 26-31, 2022.
Inspired by the beloved films, this dazzling show will transport you from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out on a journey to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family.
With its opulent settings, dazzling costumes, and a soaring score including the song favorites from the hit animated film, “Journey to the Past” and “Once Upon a December,” ANASTASIA is the spectacular new musical about discovering who you are and defining who you’re meant to be.
From the Tony Award-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime and inspired by the beloved films, ANASTASIA is the new Broadway musical that’s “one of the most gorgeous shows in years!” (New York Observer).
