So here it is! Our next exciting production! Grease!

40 years since its electric Broadway and West End debut in the 1970’s, Grease remains one of the world’s most popular and enduring musicals. Funny, frank and featuring the hit songs Greased Lightnin’, You’re The One That I Want, Hopelessly Devoted To You and Summer Nights, Grease follows the jouney 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.

Join York Light Opera for two weeks of leather jackets, hand-jives, milkshakes and plenty of grease...

About York Light Youth!


York Light Youth is the Youth Branch of York Light that focuses on theatrical productions for 11 to 18 year-olds.
Established in July 2013, our aim is to nurture and develop young performers aged 11-18 who share our passion for musical theatre by providing them with the opportunity to take part in high quality musical productions. York Light Youth members who are 16+ are also invited to perform in the main shows at The York Theatre Royal.
We have an experienced Director, Musical Director and Choreographer spearheading the creative side and YLY is supported by the main York Light Opera Company Management Team.

As well as putting on an annual show, York Light Youth also has its own choir which meets regularly throughout the year and performs in the annual Choir Festival at Joseph Rowntree theatre, at York's St Sampson's Centre, and other concerts in York.

About Us:


York Light Opera Society was formed in 1953 to perform the challenging new musicals of the time. In 2003 we became York Light Opera Company Limited for financial reasons, although we remain an amateur group. Throughout our history we have built an excellent reputation for producing shows to a professional standard and the Company takes great pride in continuing its tradition of bringing new musicals to York as well as breathing new life into old favourites.
