Following months of rehearsals, the curtain is set to rise on Bulahdelah Central School’s production of the musical Grease next week.
The show will be packed with all the hit songs from the 1979 movie including Greased Lightning, You’re The One That I Want and Summer Nights.
Added to the choreographed dance routines, stunning sets and dazzling costumes, the atmosphere is sure to be electrifying and will have the audience hand-jiving and singing along with the cast.
The lead roles of Sandy and Danny Zuko will be capably played by Paris Battle from Tea Gardens and Bailey Shultz from Bulahdelah.
Paris auditioned for the role earlier this year and said she was surprised when she found out she had landed the leading part.
“It’s been challenging and lots of hard work learning the lines and dance routines, but it’s also very rewarding and lots of fun,” she said.
“The cast is amazing, everyone has a lot of ability and you learn so much from the people around you during rehearsals.”
The main cast of around 50 secondary students will be supported by a 25-voice choir made up of children from Kindergarten to Year 6.
Paris told News Of The Area the 1950’s themed musical will appeal to everyone.
“The whole cast have so much fun on stage so the performance is full of energy,” she said.
“It’s a great fast-paced entertaining show that’s not to be missed.”
Evening performances will run from Tuesday 1 November through to Thursday 3 November commencing at 6.00pm in the School Hall.
Tickets are available from Bulahdelah Central School Office.
