After eight months of hard graft, Wings Youth Theatre staged its inaugural production of "Grease Schools Edition". The show ran from the 1st-3rd November in Plumpton Village Hall, and received a heartwarming response from audiences, parents and volunteers.


The team are beyond proud of this year's cast, and are incredibly grateful to the huge army of volunteers behind the scenes, without whom the show just wouldn't have been possible.


But that's certainly not it. Wings are already rehearsing for their next project; a concert in March 2020, as well as an exciting collaboration with the Lewes Youth Band in April 2020. The company will set its sights on another stage show later in the year.

On the 13th February 2019, Wings Youth Theatre launched, welcoming over 30 young people aged 11-18 from East and West Sussex.


Auditions

At the launch night, Wings’ first Musical Theatre show was revealed: Grease Schools Edition. The team behind Wings Youth Theatre were also introduced: Ann-Marie Forster, Kate Taylor, Lisa Pontremoli, Mary Ward & James Honess. The directorial team for Grease are Derrick Taylor and James Honess (Director and Musical Director, respectively).


Since launching, Wings has run two structured workshops, allowing time for audition prep and general introductions to Grease Schools Edition. Team Wings were blown away with the enthusiasm of their prospective cast, and paints a positive picture of the future for Youth Theatre in Sussex.

And so auditions were held. Team Wings wants to congratulate every single young person who stepped up to the plate. We are especially proud of those who auditioned for the first ever time, which takes huge bravery and self-belief.


The Grease cast is jam-packed full of talent and potential. Both principal and ensemble parts show promise, evidenced by the first rehearsal where the whole company sang through the opening number “Rydell Alma Mater”. After the first sing-through, Team Wings shared a moment of excitement, now looking forward to November when Grease Schools Edition will be staged in Plumpton Green Village Hall.


Tickets will go on sale after Easter.
