"It's that time of year again and the students of Newbridge College are gearing up to present the Broadway hit musical 'Hairspray' for 5 shows in November. They will showcase their talents for 2 matinees and 3 evening shows- the evening shows will be staged from Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th November in the college theatre.

After several gruelling auditions the leads were chosen and since then they have been rehearsing day and night ready to impress. Emma-Jane Grant takes to the stage as Tracy Turnblad with Tom Higgins playing the role of Link Larkin - the heart throb of the show. Hugh O'Donnell takes on the daunting task of Edna, a role played by John Travolta on Broadway and we've no doubt that Hugh will put his own touch to the role. Daniella Traynor plays the lively role of Motormoth Maybelle working alongside Mark Sutton who is playing Corny Collins - the host of the classic tv show.

With a never ending array of talent, songs and dances this promises to be a performance to remember from all the students. Tickets will be available from the college office, adults €10 and students / OAP's €7. Your support will be greatly appreciated."
