Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University Musical Theatre students have graduated straight to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre’s (QPAC) Lyric stage in a special presentation of Grease from 10 to 13 November 2021.

The premiere season of Grease at QCGU earlier this year was a hit, with a reimagined production breathing fresh life into the show, though we are delighted that our longstanding association with QPAC has provided this historic opportunity for our students to perform in the state’s largest theatre.

Don’t miss taking a trip down memory lane with Rydell High’s class of ’59 for the iconic musical Grease, presented by QPAC and performed by the Musical Theatre students from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University for six shows only.
