Open auditions are being held to find a new Tracy Turnblad for the upcoming tour of Hairspray.

The auditions will take place on February 6 at Pineapple Dance Studios in London, with the tour of the musical opening in Cardiff in August.

Producers are looking for a performer who is under 5’3” and who is “heavyset”, with a playing age of 16.

They are looking for a “strong pop belt singer and great mover” for the role.

Recalls will take place on February 10.

The show is produced by Mark Goucher.
