Hairspray Tickets

London Coliseum

Michael Ball returns as Edna Turnblad in the heart-warming dance extravaganza Hairspray at the London Coliseum. This upbeat musical piles on the attitude and proves it has a massive heart to match its awesome moves.

Big hair and bigger tunes

Larger-than-life musical Hairspray returns to London for a limited summer run, with Michael Ball reprising his role as Edna Turnblad. Get ready to jive along to this infectious, upbeat show at the London Coliseum.

In 1960s Baltimore, starry-eyed dancer Tracy Turnblad dreams of performing on her favourite TV show. But when it turns out that the studio isn’t the idealistic haven she had imagined, Tracy is determined to shake up the status quo.

Hairspray is a hit on both sides of the Atlantic, with an irresistibly catchy soundtrack including "Good Morning Baltimore" and "You Can't Stop the Beat" helping it win eight Tony Awards and four Olivier Awards.

Michael Ball slips the beehive wig and kitten heels back on as Edna Turnblad, having previously won an Olivier Award in the role 13 years ago. He is joined by a glittering cast including Rita Simons (EastEnders), Marisha Wallace (Waitress) and Les Dennis.

Big hairdos, bigger dance moves and even bigger heart: Hairspray tickets promise it all. Catch the ultimate uplifting musical at the London Coliseum this year.
