A host of local people has been rehearsing since last September to produce the show and Rosemary Westwell, who attended the rehearsals, said: “Each year it seems to get better and better.

“The hard work has really paid off from what I witnessed at the final rehearsal of ‘Hairspray’ on Sunday.

“It was a mass of locals of all ages having a great time while providing a show of considerable quality and vitality.
