December 2007: It was coming up towards my 16th birthday and we were going to be in London at the weekend (the day of my 16th was a Saturday) and my mum suggested to me that I shouldn't go shopping or sight-seeing but do something else in the afternoon to pass the time - so the week before my birthday my mum chose a musical for me to go and see I wanted it to be fun, happy and something I would be able to enjoy. On the day, my mum bought the tickets they came to a cost of one hundred and twenty pounds and I was like 'mum, how can you spend that much on tickets..I hope it better be a good show or it's a total waste of money!'
my mum replied 'Don't worry it's a new show that's come out and it's suppose to be fun, happy and really good!'
'What we going to see then.' I then asked and my mum answered 'hairspray - the film came out earlier this year!'
I was so excited and it was starring west end star Michael Ball and director/comedian Mel Smith! Apparently Michael Ball was going to be a woman in drag!
So my sweet 16th birthday came, and I was so excited about getting into London, we went pretty early so I could shop, sight-see, performance and meal all in one day.
The performance was a matinee and i couldn't wait to see what Michael Ball would look like in drag!
The musical was a fantastic way to celebrate my 16th it was big, huge, fun, happy lively and everything my mum mentioned when she bought the tickets! and it was worth every penny of the one hundred and twenty pounds of two tickets! I got the program too (which cost eight pounds) which would remind me of the great musical experience.
The music/songs, set and characters made the show so big!
Music score was done by Marc Shiman and lyrics were done by Scott Whittman
