Amateur talent from Huddersfield will be crossing the Kirklees/Calderdale divide to appear in the hit musical Hairspray at the Halifax Victoria Theatre later this month.

Established musical theatre veteran Scott Armstrong, who has taken many leading roles in both Huddersfield and Halifax, will be in the role of Corney Collins, host of a television dance show.

He will be joined by Huddersfield area performers Francine Graham, making her debut as Motormouth Maybelle with Halifax Amateur Operatic Society, and Danielle Williams as Amber von Tussle.

The Broadway hit is on from September 17 until 20.
