IT’S been a busy six months for a group of students and teachers from Great Lakes College.

They’ve been acting, singing, dancing and working behind the scenes on their production of Grease, which debuts this week. 

“We have students working in all aspects of the production, including lighting, props and playing the music in the band,” Grease producer and director Vincent Jensen. 

Mr Jensen said staff have also been involved with contribution from music, drama, dance, industrial arts and visual arts. 

“It’s been a massive undertaking, with practice twice a week, every week,” he said. 

“The students have realised it’s a lot of hard work. They need to sing, dance and act – sometimes at the same time. It’s a really good cast and the crew all have a great energy.”

Staff members will also make cameos in the production.

Grease is on this Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at the Forster Campus from 7pm. Adult tickets are $15, student $10 and $40 family (two children and two adults).
