*UPDATE : The show will start broadcasting on Sunday 31st August 2008, 19:00 BST, Sky One*
OH… MY…… GOODNESS!!!!!
I AM RATHER EXCITED!!!!!!!!
Hairspray : The School Musical is a new show that Sky One are set to broadcast with Denise Van Outen as the host, along side a strong team of coaches and with the valuable support of some of the current West End cast and creative in a bid to have a group of school kids performing the smash hit musical Hairspray.
For those of you who, like me, are without Sky, the programme will also be available on Sky Player (no Sky subscription required, though any programme watched through the Player is chargeable – usually around £1.00).
There’s no news on when the programme will start to air, other than “autumn”, and it seems to be gauging a mixed reaction from the public on-line. I, however, am unashamedly excited about this programme and think that I will be able to identify with it a lot more than I could with the recent I’d Do Anything programme (shock, horror, I’m not a huge fan of Oliver!).
Alas, there’s not yet been a lot of media released for this show and so it’s been hard to even find a picture! The official website for the show has a video and all of the information that you could ever need though.
In light of that, I have decided to instead post a picture that reflects the title of this new show – i.e. the amalgamation of Hairspray and High School Musical…. so here’s a picture of Zac Efron for us all to enjoy instead hehe!
Once I find a way of getting to watch this show (e.g. ‘randomly’ turning up at people’s houses just in time for this hehe), I am sure that I’ll have plenty more to say on the subject- woo!
