This production is directed by Paul Kerryson and choreography by Drew McOnie.

Alongside award-winning comedian Norman Pace as Wilbur Turnblad, Matt Rixon returns to the role of Edna Turnblad, Jon Tsouras as Corney Collins, Edward Chitticks as Link Larkin, Aimee Moore as Amber Von Tussle, Gina Murray as Velma Von Tussle and newcomer Rebecca Mendoza makes her professional debut as Tracy Turnblad.

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.
