Wellington Heights is pleased to present the theatrical musical production of Grease.

There are four different production dates/performances to attend. Please ensure that you select the correct date, as tickets are not transferable between productions and are non-refundable.

There is no assigned seating. Please bring a copy of the receipt as proof of purchase to gain entry to the school cafetorium.

Please note that this production does contain more mature content, humour and some vulgar/explicit language. The show at times also mentions the use of age-restricted products such as alcohol and tobacco, and although it does not necessary promote them, we would like students and parents to be aware of this prior to attending the production.

Any questions can be forwarded to Brayden Scott (Director) at brayden.scott@ugdsb.on.ca
