Hairspray’s UK tour will be pulling into Milton Keynes from 1st to 6th April 2013.
Led by stage and screen star Mark Benton as Edna Turnblad, the show also stars former EastEnders actress Lucy Benjamin as Velma Von Tussle and X Factor star Marcus Collins as Seaweed Stubbs. Newcomer Freya Sutton plays Tracy Turnblad whilst Sandra Marvin reprises her West End role as Motormouth Maybelle.
The synopsis for the show is:
It’s 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 super high ‘do’? If anyone can, Tracy can!
