Dalyellup College arts students to show that Grease is the word

The drama students from Dalyellup College are set to transport Bunbury audiences back to the 1950s with their spirited production of Grease to hit the New Lyric Theatre stage later this month. 

Dalyellup College head of arts Taneeka Grant said Grease has always been a personal favourite of hers and the talented students working on the show are all set to bring Rydell High to life. 

“This is the shaping up to be the biggest and best show we’ve ever done,” she said. 

“Who doesn’t love the iconic songs and dance moves? 

“The themes of the show are also really relevant to the students – peer pressure, belonging, first loves – so they connect to what they are working on.”

The cast have been rehearsing solidly since February and for Samuel Heys and Ashleigh-Marie Bell, the students cast to play Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson, the hard work will definitely pay off. 

“I feel like we’ve all become close, like a family and it’s fun to be around everyone during the rehearsals,” Ashleigh-Marie said. 

“The thing I like most about being in the show has been creating new friends and seeing just how far each character has come since we started rehearsing,” Samuel said. 

The pair have promised an enjoyable show with plenty of bright costumes and fast scene changes. 

“We have put in a lot of time and effort to make it great for the local community to watch – we hope they love it,” Ashleigh-Marie said. 

The theatre will be a buzz on August 17, 18 and 19 with pre-show pep rally activities from 6.30pm with the show set to being at 7.30pm. 

Tickets are $15 and available for purchase from the Dalyellup College school administration.
