It’s Baltimore, 1962 where 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, bagging local heartthrob Link Larkin along the way.

Featuring the hit songs Welcome To The 60s, You Can’t Stop The Beat, The Nicest Kids in Town and many more, Hairspray will delight audiences during Blackpool’s world-famous Illuminations season.

Winter Gardens Managing Director Michael Williams said: “We are thrilled Hairspray is coming to the Winter Gardens next year.


“This is a fantastic feel-good show and one I am sure will be a huge success in Blackpool.

“Whether you’ve previously seen Hairspray on the stage or screen or you’ve not seen it at all, it is a show which attracts a wide ranging audience and is suitable for all ages.”

Further details about casting will be revealed soon.
