Dear Members, Cast, and Patrons,

Following the government’s announcement on the 24 August, we are pleased to advise that rehearsals for our current shows can continue with the alert level two restrictions in place. 

We have considered the government’s timeline provided for alert level two, and are now having to look at re-scheduling the show dates. We will be transferring the first 8 shows until late September. Iticket will be in contact with you about changing your seats. We ask you to once again be patient in this process. The shows scheduled from 8th September to 12th September will stay as booked and will not need re-scheduling at this stage.

Given this situation could change at any stage, we will keep you updated as necessary.

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the cast and our patrons for your patience and understanding during these testing times. 

We thank you for your understanding and support for us as we do our utmost to bring live theatre to the stage for our loyal supporters.

Thank you,

Executive Committee

Napier Operatic Society


Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950’s in this rollicking musical.

Funny, frank and featuring the hit songs “Greased Lightnin’,” “You’re The One That I Want,” and “Summer Nights”, Grease follows the journey of Danny and Sandy, alongside the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies, as they navigate high school to the unforgettable rock n’ roll soundtrack that defined generations.
