In celebration of 89 Years of Theatre By The Sea, owner and producer Bill Hanney is proud to present the six time Tony® Award-winning musical Kinky Boots, which will be presented from August 17 – September 11, 2022.

“It’s hard to believe we are opening the final production of our 2022 season,” said Bill Hanney. “And what better way to close out our first full season back after the shutdown, than with an uplifting, positive musical that's fresh, funny, and a great night at the theatre. Though the title is a bit cheeky, the show has a huge heart and delivers the universal message about how opening your heart and mind can change your life and the life of those around you. There are a lot of lessons to be learned in this glittering show which will leave audiences smiling and ready to come back for more Theatre By The Sea magic in 2023.”

“Sometimes the best way to fit in is to stand out!” Kinky Boots is the freshest, most fabulous, feel-good musical and the winner of every major award, including the 2013 Tony® Award for Best New Musical! With songs by Grammy® and Tony® Award-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper and book by Broadway legend Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles, Newsies), this dazzling, fabulously sassy and uplifting musical celebrates a joyous story, inspired by true life events, taking you from the factory floor of a Northampton men's shoe factory to the glamorous catwalks of Milan! It's the ultimate fun night out for you and your loved ones to experience the energy, joy, and laughter of this dazzling show.
