Show producer Kieran Corr said, “We have a very talented cast. Zoe Managh from Portadown College and Dairine McCaughley from St Ronan’s College, Lurgan, are both sharing the part of Sandy. Zoe and Dairine are two fabulous singers and deserve the role.

“Ethan Lawlor, a former pupil of Lismore Comprehensive, will perform as Danny Zuko. Ethan is a class act who has starred in The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables School Edition and has performed in Her Majesty’s Theatre London.”

The role of Rizzo will be shared by Cara Hegarty (15) from Portadown and Craigavon girl Aine Morris while Portadown teen Dylan Breen will perform as Doody.

The show takes place each night at 8pm and there is also a matinee show on Sunday at 3pm.

Tickets cost £10 with a concession rate of £8 for u16s and OAPs. They are available from Winnie’s in Woodhouse Street, Print Business Supplies Lurgan and Greene’s Nisa Local. Brownlow Centre.

Mr Corr added, “I have to commend the teenagers for all their hard work over the summer. I fully recommend to everyone, don’t miss Grease! It’s the number one greatest musical and the original electrifying production will light up the stage in Portadown.

“Dust off your leather jackets, pull on your bobby-socks and take a trip to a similar times as ‘bad boy’ Danny and ‘the girl next door’ Sandy fall in love all over again.”
