Colchester Operatic Society Second Edition (CO2) present, in their 30th Anniversary Year,

Award winning CO2 are proud to be celebrating their 30th anniversary year with the production where it all started, Grease. This ever popular show centers on the story of Sandy Dumbrowski and Danny Zucko, whose summer romance quickly escalates when Sandy is transferred to Danny’s high school, Rydell High. Supported by the Pink Ladies and the T-Birds, we follow the complex relationships and issues with senior year.

Set in the backdrop of 1950s America and with an instantly recognisable score, which includes, popular hits such as,; “Summer Loving”, “Look At Me I’m Sandra Dee”, “Born to Hand Jive”, “Hopelessly Devoted To You” “You’re The One That I Want” and “Grease Lighting”, this latest offering from CO2 is not one to be missed!
