“Our summer season is always a big hit, for both local theatregoers and holidaymakers alike. This year is going to be even more special after the 18 months that we have all been through”.

The theatre has a range of Covid-secure measures still in place to ensure the safety of their audiences, cast, staff and volunteers.

Joining director James Aconley is Devan Kellett as choreographer, who made her YMCA Productions creative team debut in Raise Your Voice earlier this year, and Jessica Douglas as musical director.

“If you want an evening full of laughter, catchy tunes and energetic dance routines, all brought together by the much-loved characters made famous by the fantastic movie, then Grease is the show for you this summer”, said James.
