It’s Electrifying!

“Have you been yet? You must go. It’s amazing!” was the beat from the street during the four night full-house run of Tobermory High School’s production of “Grease”. It did not disappoint.
40 years since the release of the film “Grease,” the story is a familiar one: girl meets boy, they like each other; they go through testing times; they learn and grow; they declare their love for each other in a joyful finale.

However it is still possible to modify these, and you can have input until the end of 3rd January 2019 via an online survey - see below. Indeed Mull Community Council and various individuals have already submitted completely different proposals ... more in the full issue
