Royal Caribbean International is known for their fantastic production shows, and when Oasis of the Seas begins sailing in December 2009, that tradition will continue. The Tony award-winning Broadway-licensed musical, 'Hairspray,' is set to debut in the ship's grand Opal Theater.
According to Peter Compton, RCI's Vice President Entertainment, "The show is licensed to Royal Caribbean International for three years aboard Oasis of the Seas with an option for a fourth year. Under the agreement, which was struck with the aid of New York City-based Music Theater International and Broadway Theatrical, the show will be available exclusively to the cruise line, ensuring the 'feel good' performance will be the only of its kind at sea."
'Hairspray' had a seven year run on Broadway, which ended this past January, and is still dazzling audiences at London's West End. The show is set in the 1960s and tells the story of Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big aspirations who wins a spot on a local TV dance program and finds herself transformed into a teen sensation.
