BILSTON Operatic Company is returning to Wolverhampton Grand Theatre with the feel-good Broadway and West End musical Hairspray.

Set in 1962 Balitmore, teenager Tracy Turnblad (Rebecca Lutter) is obsessed with The Corny Collins show and one of its dancers, Link Larkin (Jack Cottis).

Though rejected by producer Velma Von Tussle (Niamh Allen) at auditions, when Tracy shows off some moves at the Sophomore Hop, Corny Collins (Adam Lacey) gives her a place on the show.

Tracy is soon launched to celebrity stardom and meets a colourful array of characters – but she can’t stand that the show won’t allow integration and launches a campaign to make it happen.

The show, which runs from November 10-14 is based on the 1988 John Walters film and includes 60s dance music and downtown rhythm and blues.

Ticket prices start at £8.50 and are available by clicking here.
