Entertainment's just Grease Lightning at the Jetty
COMMUNITY theatre is thriving in Coffs Harbour, according to Jetty Memorial Theatre marketing co-ordinator David Horsley.
"With the Jetty Memorial Theatre as the hub for performing arts, it's time to flip up the collars on your leather jackets as Coffs Harbour Arts Council brings Grease The Musical to the stage with a talented local cast of T-Birds and Pink Ladies," David said.
"The longest running musical of all time hits the boards at Jetty Memorial Theatre for what will be a wonderful community show."
Grease The Musical runs from now until October 8, with 2pm and 8pm shows most days.
Pat Slattery directs Rydell High's 1959 senior class - the duck-tailed, hot-rodding Burger Palace Boys and gum-snapping, hip-shaking Pink Ladies in bobby sox and pedal pushers.
Head greaser Danny Zuko and good-girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their Summer Nights as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through Grease hits Hopelessly Devoted to You, You're the One I Want and Sandy.
Tickets cost $26 for adults, concessions and under-21s $23, family $75, plus $2 booking fee.
"Following up, Coffs Harbour Amateur Theatre Society presents Twelfth Night or What You Will as actors from Bellingen, Dorrigo and Coffs Harbour pay ode to The Bard's work on the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death," David said.
Shirley Barnett directs the William Shakespeare comedy, running from October 13-23, bringing a shipwreck, twins, cross-dressing, a duel, a clown, music and fun together for a Christmas pudding
Shirley assembles a diverse cast, drawing actors from Dorrigo, Bellingen and Coffs Harbour, with all ages and levels of experience covered, from 10-year-olds to too-old-to-care.
Twelfth Night or What You Will will show Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesday, with shows at 2pm and 8pm.
Tickets cost $25 for adults, concessions and under-21s $22, students $20, groups of 10 or more $22 (each person), October 16 and 19 $20, plus a $2 booking fee.
