Highfields’ production of Grease has been rescheduled for this week after heavy snowfall forced us to cancel three performances.
The first performance of the stage spectacular went ahead as planned last Wednesday (Feb 28th) but shows scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday (March 1/2/3) had to be called off due to the treacherous weather conditions.
The shows have now been rescheduled to take place this Thursday, Friday and Saturday (March 8/9/10). Tickets purchased for last week will be valid for the corresponding day of this week.
An extra rehearsal will take place for the cast, which will run from 3.30pm-5pm for members of the chorus and from 3.30pm-7pm for principals and the band.
The musical is being staged after months of rehearsals, which have taken place every Thursday and some Saturdays since October. It is the school’s second showcase collaboration with neighbouring Penn Fields School.
Ms S Bishop, Head of Performance, said: “We took the decision to call off last week’s shows due to the heavy snowfall.
“We were so disappointed for our students after they had put in so much hard work over many months, but the risk to their safety and that of members of the audience travelling in to school was too great to go ahead with the original dates.
“We are delighted to have been able to reschedule the shows for this week and are looking forward to welcoming you all to sing along to Grease’s many iconic hits!”
Shows start at 7.30pm in the Lyceum and refreshments will be available in the interval.
