5 reasons why Hairspray has inspired audiences

Over the last week, Wales Millennium Centre has been transported to Baltimore, 1962 for the highly anticipated production of Hairspray. Big hair, big voices and big personalities shine through the musical as it tells the tale of a young Tracy Turnblad and her dreams to dance her way on to ‘The Corny Collins Show’.  If you haven’t caught the show yet, there’s still time, but until then, here’s why we love it…

While famous for its vintage-inspired costumes, lively musical numbers and loveable, believable characters, the Tony Award winning production is often hailed as larger than life, but it isn’t just a work of frothy escapism. Underneath the big hair and sixties spirit, the magic comes from its place in pop culture, drawing an America on the brink of change.

Meet the team: Grace Nelder

Asking someone what they want to be when they grow up can lead to worried looks, a racing pulse and sweaty palms. While many people have a rough idea of where they want to be in the working world, there are so many options out there, it can be a daunting thought.

At the Wales Millennium Centre, we offer several placements and work experience opportunities to help those interested in the Arts figure out where they want to be. Whether they’re still in education, or just starting off in their careers, we love bringing new talent into the building.

As part of our series of blogs where we dig deeper into the roles of those who work at the Centre, we caught up with Grace Nelder (Placement Student, PR and Communications) to find out what it’s like behind the scenes.
