2017 Musical Hairspray
Hairspray is an empowering musical jam packed with charismatic characters, vibrant dances, and vivacious songs with those renowned numbers.  It had our audience tapping their toes and dancing in their seats.  What makes this musical so special though is the overwhelming message of acceptance, tolerance and unity. We had an amazing cast of students ranging from Years 7-12 and our talented band practised tirelessly to ensure the songs were played to precision and style.​
