Its 1962, the 50s are out and change is in the air… Baltimore’s Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion – dancing!
She wins a spot on the local TV dance programme, The Corny Collins Show and, overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a trendsetting hair-hopper like Tracy get her massively shy Mom out of the apartment, beat evil Amber to be crowned Miss Hairspray, integrate Corny’s show for good AND win the heart of local heartthrob Link Larkin, all without denting her ‘do? If anyone can, Tracy can!
Stage, screen and radio star Mark Benton will lead the company of the award-winning musical comedy Hairspray when it embarks on a UK and Ireland tour in 2013 and will play Edna, the larger than life Turnblad family matriarch. Mark has appeared in a number of TV programmes including Murphy’s Law, Waterloo, Doctor Who and Britannia High.
Ex Eastenders actress Lucy Benjamin will take up the role of scheming TV executive and archetypal ‘showbiz mom’ Velma Von Tussle, newcomer Freya Sutton as big-hearted, big-haired teen heroine Tracy Turnblad and X Factor 2011 finalist Marcus Collins as Seaweed Stubbs, one of the coolest kids at Patterson Park High, son of DJ Motormouth Maybelle and love interest of Penny Pingleton.
This wonderful musical is coming to the Kings Theatre for just 12 days, so make sure you bag your tickets while you still can!
