Rotherham theatre company seeks new performers

Have your say

A musical theatre company in Rotherham is seeking performers for its upcoming production of Hairspray.

Wickersley Musical Theatre Company secretary Deborah Stacey said: “This show reflects a social commentary on the racial injustices witnessed in some parts of American society throughout the 1960s.

“To accurately portray the story, we’re particularly keen to welcome black performers.”

Set in Baltimore, Maryland, Hairspray tells the story of Tracy Turnblad’s dream to dance on The Corny Collins Show - a local TV dance program based on the real-life Buddy Deane show. Once on the show, Tracy becomes an overnight celebrity.
