Event description: Captioned Performances
Captioning is similar to television subtitling and gives deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people access to live performances. The actors’ words appear on a display unit at the same time as they are spoken or sung. Speaker names, sound effects and off stage noises are also shown. Please note: when booking please ask for seats suitable for seeing the captions. It is best to book seats for Captioned Performances via Ticket Sales rather than online.
About the show: It’s Baltimore, 1962 where Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, is on a mission to follow her dreams and dance her way onto national TV. Tracy’s audition makes her a local star and soon she is using her new-found fame to fight for equality, bagging local heartthrob Link Larkin along the way!
Directed by Paul Kerryson and with choreography by Drew McOnie, this production is guaranteed to have you dancing the night away!
Featuring the hit songs Welcome To The 60s, You Can’t Stop The Beat, The Nicest Kids in Town and many more. Don’t miss this irresistible feel-good show that will have you smiling for days – let your hair down and book now!

It is always best to book through our Access phone line 0121 689 1060 when booking assisted performances.
For most audio-described performance we do, we have a Touch Tour that precedes the show. Touch Tours must be booked in advance through Ticket Sales. Times for the Touch Tours will be confirmed on booking. Our Touch Tours allow visually impaired patrons the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the set, props and costumes.
If you have an assistance dog, please advise Box Office at the time of booking and they can then allocate the most appropriate seating for you or make adequate provision to care for your dog during the performance.
