REVIEW: Hairspray, The Kings of Wessex Academy production
The academy’s recent production of Hairspray, directed by subject leader for drama Simon Shorrock, has held up Kings’ high standards for theatre productions.
The popular musical set in the 1960s follows the story of Tracy Turnblad, a teenager from Baltimore who dreams of being on the stage. Following her entry to the Corny Collins show, she sets her eyes on a bigger goal: integrating TV forever. But has she bitten off more than she can chew?
The show, complete with a giant can of hairspray, was a delight to watch for the audience, as well as an enjoyable experience for the cast – one of the main characters described it as “great fun” and “really exciting”.

As good as – if not better for being live – to the film adaptation, the lead roles of Tracy Turnblad (Lucy Kelson) and Seaweed (Ben Hutton) added some inspiration to the show with their stunning performances, not least Tracy’s amazing vocals.
Performed by a live band, and with superb dancing, the characters really brought the stage to life. The show was a great night out for all the family, and sent home the catchy message You Just Can’t Stop The Beat.
