The Musical Sensation that is "GREASE" will come to life for a new generation when it hits the stage of The Grand Opera House in October. The show, which seems to capture the imagination of young and old, is on limited release, and the Ulster are very proud and delighted to be given the opportunity to present it to Northern Ireland audiences!

Have YOU signed up yet? The response so far has been phenomenal, so make sure YOU register soon, to have the opportunity to audition to be part of what promises to be a sensational experience. 

We are delighted that the Director of our award-winning productions of "Guys and Dolls" and "Little Shop of Horrors", Peter Kennedy, has been appointed as Director/Choreographer for this production. We are also extremely excited that West End of London Musical Director, Chris Tingley, will make his Northern Ireland debut as our MD for "Grease".
