Albany Light Opera and Theatre Company in Albany, Western Australia presents Grease

Opening October 20

Things To Know About This Production

A wop bop a lu mop a wop bam boom! Grease is the Word for ALOTCo in 2023!

If you've loved Grease since you first saw it on the big screen or fell in love with one of the stage revivals ... Throw your mittens around your kittens and away we go ….

Persons 16+ are welcome to audition but the creative team is comfortable casting 'mature' talent to ensure each character shines.

At times crass, tough, vulnerable, lusty, and romantic, Grease the musical follows ten working class teens as they navigate the complexities of peer pressure, personal values and love. It's not all about Sandy and Danny. The focus of this production will be developing a strong ensemble performance that takes the audience back to gritty roots of Grease before the highly polished, but beloved film and arena spectacular versions.
