The ever-popular musical, Grease, is back on stage at the Stettler Performing Arts Centre next week, running from Nov. 28 through Dec. 1.
The Wildcat Theatre production involves 65 students from grades 9 to 12 at William E. Hay Composite High School.
Director Darren Fleischhacker said Grease still appeals to younger generations — almost 35 years after the movie was first released — and the students have “a great deal of fun with it.”
Casting for the production was done at the end of the last school year. The aspiring actors, singers, dancers and musicians have been working since the second week of September on showcasing their talents.
Mark Forrester and Katie Monaghan play the lead roles of Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsen.
The play is set in the 1950s’ fictitious Rydell High School.
This is the second time that Stettler high school thespians have performed Grease. The previous production was in 1999, Fleischhacker said.
There are still a few tickets remaining for next week’s show.
They’re available at the high school office.
