Grease (7 March 2020)
Join us for a fabulous day singing the hit songs from the musical Grease! If you love to sing, You're The One That We Want!
Following the success of our The Sound of Music and ABBA Come and Sing events, we're delighted to welcome Ben Parry back to Edinburgh to conduct a fabulous concert to the hit songs from the musical Grease.
Whether you’re a T-bird greaser, a fabulous Pink Lady, or just enjoy a good sing-along, then this event is for you!
You’ll rehearse with a live band and soloists before performing an early evening concert to an audience Hopelessly Devoted to You. And don’t forget our Rydell High fancy dress competition!
We are expecting another sell-out Come and Sing event, so early booking is recommended. Online booking is now open, or should you wish to register by post, please get in touch with the Fundraising team on 0131 556 9710.
