Celebrating creative arts and artists - an oasis of positivity supporting individual and community wellbeing - previews, reviews, interviews, and recommendations with Steve Cooke


The wonderful Rochdale Musical Theatre Company (RMTC) are set to transform the iconic Champness Hall into Rydell High from 5th-13th May.

With a talented cast, live orchestra and one of the most popular musical soundtracks of all time, RMTC'S high energy, all-singing, all-dancing production definitely isn't one to be missed!

Directed by Zac Grenier, with musical direction by Chris Addington and choreography by Nikki Cooke of Legacy Dance Academy, the production will truly showcase the incredible talent we have locally.

RMTC President, David Heaton, commented:

“Our 2023 production celebrates Rochdale Musical Theatre Company’s 125th anniversary [founded in 1898 and formally known as Rochdale Amateur Operatic Society]. Thank you to the theatregoers of Rochdale for their support over the years and I hope to see you at our production of Grease, as we continue to bring live theatre back to the heart of Rochdale.

“I’d also like to thank the dedicated team of volunteers involved in this production and our sponsors Storage World, Rochdale Style Magazine and The Lancashire Hospitality Co-operation.”

Grease The Musical follows RMTC’s hugely successful, award-winning productions of Legally Blonde The Musical in October 2021 and The Producers in May 2022.

Tickets are selling incredibly fast for this electrifying production, which features all the classic hits such as “Summer Nights”, “Greased Lightnin’” and “You’re The One That I Want”.

So, what are you waiting for? Get your family and friends together, grab your leather jackets and join RMTC for an unforgettable night at the theatre.

Grease runs from 5th - 13th May 2023 at Champness Hall, Drake St, Rochdale.
