Boys! You better shape up… ‘cause we need some men!

Grease is the word.. and successful Shrewsbury Musical Theatre Company ‘Get Your Wigle On’ are on the lookout for male performers to join their team of T-Birds for their June production of ‘Grease’ in Theatre Severn’s main auditorium.  Chorus and principal roles are available; all are encouraged to get in touch, regardless of previous stage experience.

The show, voted “The No.1 Greatest Musical of all time” by  100 Greatest Musicals,  is set to be the biggest and best yet for Get Your Wigle On.  A talented local cast and orchestra will be accompanied by electrifying costumes, set and choreography for six performances between June 11th and 14th

The group are now on the search for local men with an interest in musical theatre to join rehearsals at their Shrewsbury town centre studios.  Director Ross Wigley says: ‘with principal roles including Kenickie still to cast this is an excellent opportunity for guys to join us in our most exciting year yet.  If you’ve always wanted to be a T Bird- here’s your chance!’

Grease is just one of the eight musicals the company will bring to the Shrewsbury stage this year, and they’re also on the lookout for keen performers to be involved in upcoming ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and ‘Oliver!’ in Theatre Severn this Autumn.  Those interested are encouraged to get in touch as soon as possible, by emailing [email protected] or calling the Get Your Wigle On team on 07525247124.
