Record audiences of more than 2,400 people have so far booked for Kristin School’s performance of Hairspray, the
The show opened to a rousing reception on 12 May and only a few seats are left for remaining shows on 13-14 May. The
incredible talents of Kristin students are showcased in four major theatrical productions each year. Kristin School
productions are renowned for their consistently high levels of performance, music and stagecraft, and are enjoyed by
families throughout Auckland
Kristin’s Senior School Principal David Boardman described the Opening Night performance of Hairspray outstanding,
saying: “This is as good a production as you will see anywhere. I’d encourage anyone to come along to the productions we
put on at Kristin.”
The production has benefited enormously from the skills of Charlie Oswin, a professional hair and make-up artist from
the U.K. who was a member of the make-up and wig team for the West End production of Hairspray when it starred Michael
Ball. Charlie came out to NZ in 2014, overseeing hair and make-up for the British National tour of Annie. She fell in
love with New Zealand and is currently back in the country, with her partner Tom, for an extended holiday.
More than 130 talented Senior students of Kristin are involved in the cast, crew and band of Hairspray.
