The big hearted comedy musical quick steps down to the Corn Exchange for five days only
Comedy musical Hairspray hits Cambridge on 15 February for a five-day run as part of its 40-week tour of the UK.
Directed by Paul Kerryson, there are foot-tapping tunes aplenty in this story of the big-hearted, big-haired Tracy Turnblad and her ambitions of making it as a dancer in 1960s Baltimore.
Freya Sutton reprises her role as Tracy alongside Jon Tsouras as Corny Collins, Dex Lee as Seaweed, Ashley Gilmour as Link, Lauren Stroud as Amber and Monique Young as Penny. New faces and voices will include Tony Maudsley taking on the major role of Edna Turnblad, Claire Sweeney performing the part of Velma Von Tussle, Peter Duncan as Wilbur and Brenda Edwards as Motormouth Maybelle.
Described as ‘fresh and vivid’ by The Stage, this fizzy, colourful and star-studded show promises to put a smile on your face that will last long after you leave the theatre.
Tickets start at £30 and concessions are available for senior citizens, students and under 16s for specified performances. See the website for more details.
