The Committee have taken the difficult decision to cancel "Hairspray".

In light of recent developments, we checked with the rightsholders and we were advised we could proceed with the show but should endeavour to keep within the characterisations as scripted. We tried to recruit black actors for named parts and chorus but we had little success and we realise it would be wrong for us to proceed with an all white cast in the present climate.

Had it not been for Covid-19, our fabulous cast would have staged what promissed to be a stunning show just over 4 weeks ago. We initially rescheduled for September and then moved into next year but unfortunately this time it was just not meant to be.

The Grand Theatre will process refunds in due course for tickets booked via their box office (online or on the phone). Anyone who has booked tickets via a LADOS member and paid should speak to that member.

We will confirm details of our 2021 production in due course and look forward to hopefully welcoming you back to the Grand Theatre, Lancaster in May next year!
