Ifield Community College brings drama, music and dance to life with Grease

It’s been a long time coming but finally Ifield Community College have pulled together an evening of sheer fun, song and dance with their production of Grease.



With Christmas fast approaching now is the time to catch as many shows as you can and in Crawley they are coming out fast.

Ifield Community College has a one night only show of Grease and you couldn’t ask for a more fast paced enjoyable production.

With a unique mix of drama, music and dance the school has blended three different arts to bring the musical to an audience in a very different way.

There is certainly no time to catch you breath with this show as your eyes race around first watching the actors on stage before being entertained by the musicians and singers to the side.

Then it’s back to the stage with some fast paced choreography.

What makes it especially fun is the sheer joy on all the pupils faces as they are performing.  It’s a welcome return for the schools productions which have been absent for a while.

The show has been excellently pulled together by teachers Tess McThredder, Joanna Salter and George Trebar.

With a one night showing on the 12th Dec this is one show you can bring all ages to and you will all have fun!

Not only that but there is a fantastic Tex Mex meal you can enjoy first!

Tickets are £3 for the performance or £5 each to include food.

The pre-theatre meal is at 5pm and the show starts at 6pm.

You can get your tickets on the door!
