Grease is the word

9 - 16 November 2013, Joseph Rowntree Theatre

The following is an extract from the latest York Musical Theatre Company press release:


After an exciting 2012 which has seen a new Chairman, new Executive Committee and a fantastic selection of shows including a celebration of the centenary of the Titanic sinking with a sell out York Theatre Royal concert version of Titanic the Musical, York Musical Theatre Company is full steam ahead for 2013 announcing both their Spring and Autumn productions. Me and My Girl, the smash hit, multi-award winning musical will performed at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre from 9 – 13 April, with the mega-popular hit show Grease, at the same venue in the Autumn from 12 – 16 November.

Following its Olivier Award-winning run in the West End with a script revived by Stephen Fry, Me and My Girl has been on sell-out national tours with casts featuring Robert Lindsay, Emma Thompson and Gary Wilmot, including a Tony Award-winning run on Broadway.

This hilarious, smash hit musical features songs to raise the spirits including Leaning on a Lamp Post, Me and My Girl, The Sun Has Got His Hat On and the much loved classic Lambeth Walk.

Voted the No.1 best musical of all time in Channel 4’s 100 Greatest Musicals, Grease has been wowing audiences ever since the much loved film was produced in 1978. It’s built up new generations of fans each year since through the stage musical, touring internationally and with sell out runs in the West End and on Broadway. York Musical Theatre Company is thrilled to be bringing this younger generation musical to the Joseph Rowntree Theatre, and hoping this popular title will attract some new young cast members and introduce a new generation of musical audiences to the company.
