‘I’ve got chills, they’re multiplying’
It’s time to get out your leather jackets and pull on your bobby socks with Rydell High’s senior class of 1959 as Tring Festival Company continues its 36th year with an outstanding Youth Production of Grease.
The show runs at the Court Theatre from September 9–13 at 8pm and Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.
It’s the beloved rock n’ roll celebration of teen angst, fast cars and first loves, all set in the fabulous 50s.
The production features the irresistible songs from the Tony Award nominated Broadway show and hit movie, including ‘You’re The One That I Want,’ ‘Grease Is The Word,’ ‘Summer Nights,’ ‘Hopelessly Devoted To You,’ ‘Greased Lightnin’ and many more.
Grease follows love-struck bad-boy Danny and girl-next-door Sandy in a thrilling injection of pure fun with astounding dancing and amazing songs made famous by the iconic 1978 film.
The young production team is headed up by director Amy Quinlan-Dunstall, musical director Rob Schafer, choreographer Andrea Campusano and voice coach Emma Brown and features over 45 extremely talented young performers between the ages of 15-26 years from across the local area.
Show producer Lynda Minshull said: “We were very excited to take up the challenge this iconic show presents.
“Our youth productions are of a very high standard and the cast have worked tirelessly rehearsing twice a week since March.
“Tring Festival Company’s aim is to give young performers the opportunity to sing, dance and act as part of their extra-curricular activities.
“We are very proud that many of our young performers have gone on to have professional careers and continue to work and perform in the West End and indeed across the world.”
