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!

Directed by Paul Kerryson and with choreography by Drew McOnie, this production is guaranteed to have you dancing the night away!

Featuring the hit songs Welcome To The 60s, You Can’t Stop The Beat, The Nicest Kids in Town and many more. Don’t miss this irresistible feel-good show that will have you smiling for days – let your hair down and book now!
