The Wil-Hi spring musical, Grease, will include a live band in the orchestra pit. It’s the first time in 20 years they’re removed part of the stage to reveal the orchestra pit. In fact, most people had no idea the school’s auditorium even had a pit.
A mix of students and district staff make up the band and they’ll be performing live for songs like Summer Nights and Greased Lightnin’. The stage production will be a fun show for the whole family.
Grease will be on Willamette’s stage Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, May 2 – 4, at 7:00. Tickets are $5 for Students and Staff, $7 General Admission.
