Cast of Hairspray looking for a new member

Rugby Theatre is looking to find an actor to appear as Seaweed in Hairspray.

The show, will be performed in June this year and with the majority of parts cast, they are looking for a young performer to play the all-singing, all-dancing part of laid-back college kid Seaweed Stubbs.

Director Bryan Jones said: “Not only does Seaweed have to act, sing and dance a bit, but he’s usually played by someone who is black or of mixed race – that’s an integral part of the show’s storyline.”

Anyone interested in trying out for the part can contact Bryan by e-mailing on, or by calling him on 07814 161 308.
