Rehearsals are well under way for Tarporley High School's school production of Hairspray. With a cast of over 100, the school is planning for its biggest show to date. Tickets are selling fast with just over a week to go before the production begins.

Head of Drama Ellie Roberts-Williams describes the play as "Welcome to the sixties! Set at a time where segregation was ready to become integration, it is difficult to find a school production more upbeat and life-affirming than Hairspray.

Our energetic, colourful yet thought provoking, performance of Hairspray transports the audience into pre-civil rights Baltimore through the eyes of a plus-sized teenager, Tracy Turnblad. As well as dealing with racism, our version is also designed to make the audience consider the different fights and battles society has faced.
The message of our production is that if we don't stand up for what we believe in, regardless of who we are, our ideas for a better society won't be heard."

Head Teacher Sarah Lee confirmed, "We are really excited about this ambitious production.

We have a strong team of musicians, artists, actors and actresses working together and I know they will create an incredible piece of musical theatre. In advance of the production I would like to wish all the cast and crew good luck and thank them for the dedication they have shown."

Rehearsing is Olivia Thompson from Eaton singing her heart out as Corny Collins
