This full scale musical theatre production of 'GREASE' is suitable for all ages and celebrates 50's America. It's brimming with denim, cheerleaders, slick hairstyles and great dancers that'll have you hand-jiving in the aisles.

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!

So come and join Danny and Sandy, along with those groovy T'Birds, sassy Pink Ladies and the whole gang at Rydell High for this high octane rock'n'roll party!

It needs no introduction - GREASE® is the word!

Since breaking out on Broadway in 1972 Grease’s place has been firmly established in the cultural hall of fame, having seduced the hearts of millions with its back-to-back sizzling tunes, slick hairstyles and great dances that’ll have you hand-jiving in the aisles.

“The new Grease feels like a newly minted hit – one part show and two parts party where everyone is invited” Jacques Le Sourd, The Journal News.

“A blast from the past” USA Today.

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.

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.
