The Tony Award-winning musical comedy Hairspray is coming to the Fox Theatre from May 30 to June 4, and Regions Bank Broadway in Atlanta is making it easier for college students to enjoy the show.

The organization, which is the title sponsor for the Fox Theatre’s 2022-23 season, is offering special $30 student rush tickets to entice more younger people to the theatre and provide them a chance to see this beloved musical.  

Those interested should bring valid college student ID with them to the Fox Theatre Box Office two hours prior to each performance. The price will be valid for all performances with a two-ticket limit per student ID. Student Rush Tickets are subject to availability and will be sold from best available, which may include limited view locations.

Hairspray follows Tracy Turnblad in 1960’s Baltimore, as she sets out to dance her way onto TV’s most popular show, “The Corny Collins Show” and quickly becomes an overnight celebrity, a trendsetter in dance, fun and fashion, and an activist for bringing racial equality into the show.  

The all-new touring production reunites Broadway’s award-winning creative team led by director Jack O’Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell. Andrew Levitt, best known as Nina West from “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” stars as Edna Turnblad, while Niki Metcalf takes on Tracy.
