“GREASE IS THE WORD”
Playback Productions is proud to open AUDITIONS for their JULY production of
Grease is the rocking musical that follows Rydell High’s spirited class of ’59’ in their senior year of high school. It salutes the gum-chewing, hot rod-loving (T-Birds) and their wise-cracking, bobby sox and pedal pushing girls (The Pink Ladies) as the gang deals with living a teenage life in the 1950’s.
Watch as they sing and dance their way through the nostalgic rock’n’roll era, in a show which is of the most popular and most performed musicals in the world!
