Does the Regent Theatre have a dress code?
There is no formal dress code for the Regent Theatre or Hairspray, however, you may consider dressing up a bit as this show is colourful, fun and leans into 60’s fashion with more sequins and feathers than you can count – so have a bit of fun and break out the velvet threads or other retro fashion items.
Many theatre goers dress formally, as for a ballet or opera, while most people dress in smart casual wear. Wear what you're comfortable in.
