Hairspray Theatre Trip

HairsprayOn Thursday a group of students and staff went up to London to see the award winning production of Hairspray.

They visited Covent Garden, China Town and then explored the side streets of Convent Garden on the way to the Shaftesbury Theatre. They (or should I say Jez) found an ice-cream parlour which was so good Jez insisted they found it a second time.

Hairspray was excellent. It was fast moving, lively and helped by Link being Ben James Ellis from BBC’s hunt for Joseph. Part of the audience went mad every time he came out. The cast all seemed to enjoy themselves and at one point Edna Turnblad (Michael Ball) and Wilbur Turnblad (Ian Talbot) got themselves into a fit of the giggles over a double entendre that stopped the show for 5 minutes.

It was a tiring day but well worth it.
