Mark Benton takes over the role of Edna in the musical Hairspray, which is a great feel good show.

Hairspray tells the story of Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart as she sets out to follow her extraordinary dreams, inspire her mum and win the boy she loves.

Hairspray will play at the Sunderland Empire, 4-9 March 2013
