This year St Wilfrid’s promise an electrifying school production of Grease which promises to be the biggest show yet!
Grease is the original high school musical, featuring all the unforgettable songs from the hit movie including You’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin’ and many more.
St Wilfrid’s version will be a mixture of the original stage production and the film and has been rewritten and adapted to ensure that it will be our biggest and best production yet! We are also drawing ideas for the recent Grease Live TV version, which include much of the original film ideas.
The cast consists of nearly 90 students who sing, dance and act their way through this fantastic well-loved story of friendships, romances and adventures of a group of high school kids in the 1950s.
Mr Hadden, Subject Leader for Drama comments, “After years of being asked by students “can we do Grease?” we have finally succumbed and we are now hard at work in rehearsal. The auditions took place over 3 days and over that time we had over 160 students audition. It was one of the hardest shows to cast with so many talented students and even with casting almost 90 students, there were still a huge amount of talented students that we simply could use.
This year’s production promises to be the biggest and best yet and we are expecting this show to sell out so make sure you get your tickets soon to avoid disappointment. “
So throw your mittens around your kittens and hand jive the night away with the show that’ll make you want to stand up and shout, ‘A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop, a-wop-bam-boom! Tickets are on sale now so book early to avoid disappointment!
The production will run over four nights from Wednesday 21st February until Saturday 24th February 2018 starting at 7.00pm with an extra matinee performance on Saturday 24th February at 2.00pm. Tickets are priced at £8 for adults and £5 for concessions and are available via ParentPay or by contacting Debra Riches in the Student Services Office on 01292 421421.
