Thirty years after she bopped onto the music scene, Cyndi Lauper comes home for a special performance at Queens College’s Colden Auditorium Oct. 20 at 7 p.m.

And because girls just want to have fun, the former Ozone Park resident plans to perform her entire debut album, “She’s So Unusual,” in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the record’s release.

The tour, which kicked off in San Diego in June, also includes performances of songs from Lauper’s latest incarnation as Tony-winning composer of “Kinky Boots.” The musical opened on Broadway this past April and was nominated for 13 Tony Awards and won six including Best Musical.

Lauper earned one for writing the show’s music and lyrics, which was the first time a woman working alone claimed that honor.

Tickets for the Queens’ stop of the “She’s So Unusual 30th Anniversary Tour” go on sale Thursday and range in price from $35 up to $125. They can be purchased online at www.kupferbergpresents.org or at the theater’s box office located on the Queens College campus in Flushing.
