    Also returning to the production, Layton Williams will play the role of Seaweed alongside musical theatre star Brenda Edwards as Motormouth Maybelle.

    Rebecca Mendoza will make her professional debut as Tracy Turnblad.

    Joining them, Gina Murray will play Velma Von Tussle, Jon Tsouras returns as Corny Collins, Edward Chitticks will play heart-throb Link Larkin, Aimee Moore joins as Amber Von Tussle, Annalise Liard-Bailey as Penny Pingleton and Monifa James as Little Inez.
