TALENTED youngsters from across the South West are preparing to take to the stage at The Playhouse Theatre and perform in the worldwide number one musical, Grease.
For the third year running the Weston-super-Mare theatre has worked in conjunction with Loganwest Productions to give young people the chance to perform live on stage.
Following successful audition rounds in the spring around 200 enthusiastic singers, dancers, actors and technicians, aged nine-21-years were selected for the summer dance school.
The youngsters are now busy rehearsing and will perform in a show stopping, full-scale production of Grease in just two weeks, under the watchful eye of a professional creative team of directors, choreographers and vocal coaches.
Grease is the original High-School musical, featuring all the unforgettable songs from the hit movie including Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin' and many more.
If you ever loved your leather jacket or wanted to be a Pink Lady then it's time to go back to the 'One That You Want' and fall in love with Danny and Sandy all over again.
So throw your mittens around your kittens and hand-jive the night away with the show that will make you want to stand up and shout, 'A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop A-wop-bam-boom!'
Emma Smith, of LogonWest Productions, said: "We love working in Weston-super-Mare as the talent locally is of a really high standard.
"Everyone knows and loves Grease. The songs are iconic, the dance routines memorable and everyone loves singing along to 'Summer Nights' at every opportunity.
"Thursday night performance is our opening night Gala Performance, receive a free glass of bubbly or orange juice to help us celebrate opening the show in Weston-super-Mare."
