You Can’t Stop the Beat! HAIRSPRAY, Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy phenomenon that inspired the blockbuster film and live television event, is back on tour! Join 16-year-old Tracy Turnblad in 1960’s Baltimore as she sets out to dance her way onto TV’s most popular show. Can a girl with big dreams (and even bigger hair) change the world?
Featuring the beloved score of hit songs including “Welcome to the 60’s,” “Good Morning Baltimore,” “It Takes Two,” and incorporating “Ladies Choice” from the musical film adaption, 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).
Directions & Parking
Ovens Auditorium is located at 2700 East Independence Blvd.
Parking for events at Ovens Auditorium is available in the large surface lots surrounding the facility. Parking rate is $8, cash or credit.
Historic Ovens Auditorium, located at 2700 East Independence Blvd, is Charlotte’s largest performing arts theater, seating more than 2,400. It has hosted some of Blumenthal’s largest Broadway blockbusters, including multiple engagements of WICKED, and popular concerts like the Beach Boys. The theater is managed by Charlotte’s Regional Visitors Authority (CRVA).
Ovens serves a critical role for Charlotte theater and music fans because of the high usage rate of Blumenthal’s Belk Theater, which is the home hall for the PNC Broadway Lights Series and many of Charlotte’s largest cultural organizations, including the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Opera Carolina and Charlotte’s Ballet’s annual “Nutcracker.” Many nationally touring shows brought to Charlotte by Blumenthal would not be possible without having access to Ovens because the required dates are not available in Belk Theater. Ovens larger size also ensures that fan access to tickets is maximized.
