GREASE is definitely the word this season as the NYTC production of the world famous musical comes to Auckland's ASB Theatre for three shows on Friday 20 June and Saturday 21 June (matinee and evening performance).
Performed by some of New Zealand's most talented youth performers with a live band, 'GREASE' features all the unforgettable hit songs including We Go Together, Summer Nights, Grease Lightnin' and many more!
The National Youth Theatre Company's production of ‘High School Musical’ was a sell-out success requiring an ‘encore ‘ season - this show will be even bigger and better.
NYTC is a charity dedicated to “bringing confidence and life-skills to young people through the dramatic arts”. Founded in 2004, the goal is to build a sustainable, nationally recognised charity, focussed on developing young people through the arts.
In addition to our public audience, 8000 schoolchildren will travel to the Aotea Centre to see our four special school matinée performances of GREASE.
We are very pleased to have two double passes to the Friday evening, 20 June and two double passes to the Saturday evening, 21 June performance of GREASE. To be in to win, tell us whether you'd rather be a T'Bird or a Pink Lady and why. Please share your ideas in the Post Comments section of the GREASE event page.
NYTC provides theatrical training and performance opportunities for young people regardless of their level of experience, age or ability. It is the only theatrical performing programme in Auckland that is non-audition, thus open to all. In past shows we have accommodated children with learning disabilities, reduced mobility
and on-going medical conditions.
Well-known children's television personality Jason Gunn, and world-renowned musician Carl Doy are patrons of the National Youth Theatre Company Charitable Trust.
Mark Leishman will be playing 'Vince Fontaine' - the veteran 'greaser' radio disc jockey, joining his two children in the show; one of whom, Paddy, has a lead role.
Strictly Limited Season.
