Hairspray will welcome us back to the 1960s with some of the catchiest tunes from the Tony Award-winning show.

In 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, plump teenager Tracy Turnblad’s dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show.

Tracy auditions for the show and becomes an overnight success; soon she is using her new-found fame to fight for equality, bagging local heartthrob Link Larkin along the way.

But disaster strikes when Tracy takes part in a peaceful march to protest racial segregation and ends up on the run from the police.

The Broadway musical won eight Tony Awards, including one for Best Musical, in 2003 and came to London’s West End in 2008.

The musical is based on the 1988 film of the same name which starred Divine and Ricki Lake.

Following the show’s phenomenal success, it went on to be revamped and released in 2007 as a film which starred Michelle Pfeiffer, John Travolta, Queen Latifah and Zac Efron.

The touring musical comedy will star ITV comedy legend Norman Pace with music and lyrics from Academy, Tony and Emmy Award-winning duo Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman.
