Grease is the word for Queensland’s new generation of theatre stars on QPAC stage
Queensland Conservatorium’s musical theatre students will graduate straight to the stage at QPAC, bringing a modern take to Grease.
With a cast comprised entirely by students, Grease will look a little different in November.
Sean Johnston, who plays Danny, told Sofie Formica the traditional story is still the same, there will be a few twists.
“A few of the roles have been gender bent, so we’ve got non-traditional casting for a few of the roles.
“We focus on Sandy’s journey – less about how she’s empowered by the people around her but how she finds empowerment within herself.
“It brings forward different stories … and puts it in more of a modern lens.”
