A riotous tale of dancing takes to the stage at Wisbech with a performance of hairspray the Musical.

It’s 1962 in Baltimore and the lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire - to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show.

When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star.

She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning teen queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a TV network, all without denting her “do”.

Behind the sunny smiles and happy songs is also a throwback tale of the days of racial segregation.

Hairspray is being staged by RATz and is directed by Kevin Shippey.

It can be seen during half term week at The Angles on Tuesday 28, Wednesday 29, Thursday 30, Friday October 31 and Saturday November 1.
