Grease audition opportunity!

RARE Productions is giving young people in Winchester an exciting opportunity to take part in a professionally-led musical production of Grease.

Welcome to the singing and dancing world of Grease, the most successful movie musical of all time. Experience the friendships, romances and adventures of a group of high school kids in the 1950s. A wholesome exchange student and a leather-clad Danny have a summer romance, but will it cross clique lines?
