Show goes on at St Catherine’s

Whitsunday Times - - BETTER BUSINESS -

AS THE say­ing goes: The show must go on.

And the stag­ing of the hit mu­si­cal Grease per­formed by stu­dents of St Catherine’s Catholic Col­lege is no ex­cep­tion.

De­spite the havoc caused by Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Deb­bie the cast and crew have been hit­ting the boards, clock­ing re­hearsal time to not only en­sure the show goes on but to also make sure it is a spe­cial and a truly re­mark­able per­for­mance.

One hour prior to each show, the school will run a “trans­for­ma­tion fac­tory” in which mu­si­cal go­ers can get their hair and make-up done 1950s style to get into the spirit of the show.

Bring­ing out your in­ner 1950s alter ego by dress­ing up in 1950s gear or as your favourite Grease char­ac­ter is strongly en­cour­aged.

Com­ing up next month there will be three per­for­mances of the show at the St Cath’s Man­resa Cam­pus: Fri­day, May 5 at 6.30pm, Satur­day, May 6 at 1pm and 6.30pm.

St Catherine’s hos­pi­tal­ity teacher, Kate Moretto has or­gan­ised for the hos­pi­tal­ity stu­dents to sup­ply food. Guests can en­joy loaded hot dogs and chicken tasters, along with non-al­co­holic bev­er­ages.

All of this is in­cluded in the low ticket price of $15 for adults, $10 for school stu­dents and $8 for chil­dren (non-school aged chil­dren). There are also fam­ily ticket op­tions avail­able. Tick­ets can be pur­chased through the Flex­ischools web­site.
