Lord Murray SCHOORMAN is a dynamic media industry entrepreneur. Commencing his own media production powerhouse in 2001, Peak Hour Images has leaped from strength to strength in an everchanging content production landscape. Lord Murray is also a long-standing member of the Melbourne Press Club and The National Press Club of Australia. In November 2013 Lord Murray Schoorman was appointed a position on the committee of the Fitzroy Street Trader's Association & within a year he was promoted to the position of Vice President of the association. He proudly held this position for over 3 years, working closely with the major events department of the City of Port Phillip and various other stakeholders. Little known fact; Lord Murray is also a qualified senior firefighter with over 13 years experience on the frontline of high-profile international motorsport.

Some of Australia’s favourite performers are brushing off their dancing feet, including the much-loved @theshanejacobson who will star as beloved housewife Edna Turnblad, alongside the hilarious @officialtoddmckenney as Wilbur Turnblad, @rhondaburchmore as the villainous Velma Von Tussle, @robmillsymills as the lovable Corny Collins, Asabi Goodman as the powerhouse Motormouth Maybelle and introducing Carmel Rodrigues as Tracy Turnblad.

The Toorak Times sent their lead reporter and chief photographer, Lord Murray Schoorman to the Regent Theatre today to cover the preparations ahead of the opening night on Monday 15 August 2022.

With a story more relatable and pertinent than ever, the Broadway production of Hairspray also toured nationally across the US, a West End production was nominated for a record-breaking 11 Olivier Awards and it was adapted as a film in 2007 starring John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken and Zac Efron.


As mentioned, the official opening night is Monday 15 August 2022, which is no accident, it’s precisely 20 years to the day from when the much-loved production opened on Broadway. After the Melbourne season concludes, Hairspray will tour to Adelaide and Sydney.
