SMASH hit musical Hairspray is set to sing and dance its way onto the Midlands stage next week.

Following the phenomenal success of the recent UK tour, Hairspray is back on the road once again and will stop off at Birmingham Hippodrome from Monday, October 9, to Saturday October 14.

Starring ITV comedy legend, Norman Pace, the production has already received critical acclaim, featuring the iconic music and lyrics by Academy Award, Tony and Emmy winning duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.

Set in 1960s Baltimore, 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.

Tickets for Birmingham Hippodrome’s production of Hairspray are available from £19.50 by calling the box office on 0844 338 5000 or visiting
