Students in Ipswich are planning to put on a hair-raising performance when they take to the stage.

A cast of 56 students at One are gearing up for a production of Hairspray, the award-winning hit musical.

Sally Robinson, assistant faculty head of arts and sports at One, said the sixth form centre is the first of its kind to have been granted a licence in order to publically perform the show.

It will be the education centre’s third big production following performances of Guys and Dolls last year and We Will Rock You in 2012.

“This is our largest cast in terms of numbers and we always try and out-do what we have done before,” Mrs Robinson said.

The show runs from February 25-28, starting at 7.30pm.
