Grease auditions set for the Capitol

Black productions is bringing 50s musical to town.

Black Productions is bringing Grease to the Capitol Theatre stage in May, in collaboration with the Selkirk College music program.

The producers are looking for actors, singers and dancers ages 18 and up to audition for Broadway’s original high school musical. Scheduled auditions will be held January 13 and 14 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The year: 1958. The clothes: leather jackets. The hair: greasy. The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be rebellious, provocative and have fun.

In the past few years Black Productions has staged Steel Magnolias, Rock of Ages, Hedwig, Cabaret, and Chicago at the Capitol.

Grease will be directed by Lisel Forst (Rock of Ages, Chicago), with musical direction by Selkirk College’s Darren Mahe (Hedwig) and choreography by Mackenzie Hope (Rock of Ages, Cabaret).

Grease will run May 24 to 27.
