IT’S ELECTRIFYING! From next week, the People’s Hall in Kilmallock will be transformed into a scene from the 1950s when students from the local secondary school stage their production of Grease, the musical.

Following hot on the success of last year’s musical, Miss Teenage Hairspray, which played to over 1,000 people during a wildly successful run in Kilmallock, Coláiste Iósaef are continuing to build on their reputation for producing top quality musicals. “Certainly, if rehearsals are anything to go by, I think this will be a fantastic family night out,” said Seán Twomey, principal of Colaiste Iosaef Secondary School.

“It’s a musical comedy which takes a light-hearted look at some difficult themes and the cast and crew have put in great work under the guidance of our staff,” he added.

Grease takes the audience back to 1950s to Rydell High School and follows ten working-class teenagers as they navigate the complexities of love.

The musical’s production team comprises of musical/choral directors, Emer Glancy and Elaine Davern, director Marita Herbert, producer Michele Daly and choreographer Louise Raleigh, who together with the cast are determined to provide “an amazing show for the public”.

The musical will take place in The People’s Hall, Kilmallock and will run for four consecutive nights from Wednesday, February 27 to Saturday, March 2. Tickets are available within the school and are priced at €10 and can be purchased from Coláiste Iósaef at 063-98275.
