The Fine and Performing Arts Division of Northwest Florida State College will hold auditions for the college’s summer musical production of GREASE on Monday, May 10 at 6:30 pm on the main stage of the Mattie Kelly Arts Center at the NWFSC Niceville campus. Audition registration begins at 6:00 pm in the lobby of the theater. The show will cast approximately 30 appropriately aged duck-tailed, gum-snapping, hip-shaking Burger Palace Boys and Pink Ladies Girls. Rehearsals begin on May 11 and will continue until the scheduled performances of Grease on July 14, 15, 16, 17 at NWFSC. All audition materials will be passed out the night of auditions, so those who audition do not need to bring prepared material.

Additionally, if you have vintage threads from the 1950’s and 1960s taking up too much space in the back of your closet, consider giving them a second life in show business! Northwest Florida State College’s summer musical production of GREASE is seeking donations to augment the show’s costumes with authentic era clothing. Especially desired are men’s and women’s formalwear, twin sweater sets, men's leather jackets, circle skirts, or any other garments from the fabulous 50's and 60’s. All donations will be recognized in the show program. For information, please contact NWFSC costumer Jennifer Boudette at (850) 729-5284 or boudettj@nwfsc.edu to discuss making a nostalgic contribution.

GREASE had an 8-year run on Broadway and has had three subsequent revivals. GREASE remains among the world’s most popular musicals. Tickets for the college’s full-scale production of GREASE go on sale May 24. Tickets are $20 adult and $15 for youth age 18 and younger and may be purchased either on-line, by phone or in-person from the Arts Center Box at (850)729-6000 or www.mattiekellyartscenter.org (http://www.mattiekellyartscenter.org/).
