Get ready for Summer Lovin' as Grease comes to St John's stage
A PENZANCE youth theatre group will capture a little piece of showbusiness history by becoming the first amateur company in Cornwall to stage the classic, ever-popular musical Grease
The show has only recently been released to amateur companies and Judith Nichols, director of Stage Struck, said it has been frustrating waiting for the opportunity to put the show on the St John's Hall stage.
"We've waited for years to be able to put Grease on but it was only on release to professional companies and constantly on tour, so permission was always refused," she said.
"There was an abridged version for schools but with no Hopelessly Devoted To You or You're The One That I Want numbers in it – imagine doing Grease without those – and we couldn't even get our hands on that."

The show will be at St John's Hall from March 27 to 29 and it will be the last show in the hall before it closes for its major, 12-month refurbishment.
Judith added: "We plan to bring the house down with a fabulous show to mark the closure of our regular venue.
"We are anxious to recruit T Birds and Pink Ladies for the production so if you see your self as Sandy, Frenchy, Rizzo, Danny, Kenickie or Doody we expect to be auditioning in mid-September.
"If you would like to help us backstage, we'd also love to hear from you."
