Take a trip back in time to Rydell High and get ready for some summer loving and greased lightning this July.

The Art in Motion Theatre Company is presenting the ever-popular musical Grease at the Don Russell Performing Arts Centre, directed by Lys Tickner. Set in 1959, Grease follows the senior year of 10 teenagers as they navigate the complexities of peer pressure, politics, personal core values and love.  At the heart of the story is the romance between gangster Danny Zuko and sweet new girl Sandy Dumbrowski – after a secret summer affair, their chance of continuing love is more complicated now they’re back at school.

The 2pm performance on July 6 is a fancy dress sing-a-long show with audience members encouraged to dress up in their favourite Grease outfits and join in with the popular songs.

On July 11, “pay what you can afford” by reserving a seat on trybooking, then paying at the door on the night.

Grease plays at 8pm July 4, 5,6,11 and 12, 2pm July 6 and 5pm July 7. Tickets are $30, $25 concession – book at

The Don Russell Performing Arts Centre is at Lot 13, Murdoch Road, Thornlie.
