Let’s dance the night away

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s Bal­ti­more 1962, and Tracy Turn­blad, a big girl with big hair and an even big­ger heart, is on a mis­sion to fol­low her dreams and dance her way onto na­tional TV. Tracy’s au­di­tion makes her a local star and soon she is us­ing her new-found fame to fight for equal­ity, and bag­ging heart­throb Link Larkin along the way. The mu­si­cal Hair­spray is based on the 1988 John Wa­ters film which starred Di­vine and Ricki Lake. A film of the mu­si­cal was also re­leased in 2007 which starred John Tra­volta and Michelle Pfeif­fer.

The show stars Nor­man Pace, who lives in Or­p­ing­ton, as Wil­bur Turn­blad, Brenda Ed­wards as Mo­tor­mouth May­belle and Lay­ton Wil­liams as Sea­weed. Hair­spray is at the Or­chard The­atre, Dart­ford, un­til Satur­day, Septem­ber 9. For tick­ets, call 01322 220000 or go to or­chardthe­atre.co.uk

It is also at the Mar­lowe The­atre, Can­ter­bury, from Tues­day, May 8 to Satur­day, May 12, 2018.
