You're the One That We Want!
Rugby Theatre youth project auditions
Rugby Theatre is inviting talented local youngsters to audition for its summer youth project, which this year will be the iconic show Grease: the Musical.
Starring leather-clad greaser Danny and girl-next-door Sandy, plus the Pink Ladies and the Burger Palace Boys, Grease: the Musical is packed with classic hits including Summer Nights, Greased Lightning, Hopelessly Devoted to You and You’re the One that I Want.
“Don’t miss your opportunity to be part of this legendary show!” says Rugby Theatre’s promotions director Wendy Kay. “With a West End creative team and a live orchestra, our summer youth project offers an unforgettable theatrical experience over the summer holidays.”

The youth project is open to budding actors, singers and dancers aged between 10 and 21, with participants putting together a high-quality show after just 10 days of intensive rehearsals, guided by a West End director, choreographer and musical director. For those who don’t want to be on stage, there’s also the opportunity to be involved behind the scenes, in props, scenery, lighting, wardrobe and more.
Back for the first time since the pandemic, Rugby Theatre’s youth project is now in its 24th year and was set up to give young people access to theatre, and to help them develop skills they can take forward into their adult lives.
The youth project runs from 29 July - 13 August, and auditions take place on Sunday 19 February. No preparation is necessary as students will be taught a song from the show and some dance steps on the day.
