Caerphilly Youth Theatre are celebrating 2 sell out performances of their latest production, ‘Grease’, at Blackwood Miners Institute. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The story of Danny Zuko and Sandy Dumbrowski, the cool T-Birds, sassy Pink Ladies of Rydell High School proved a hit with audiences who packed out the auditorium of Blackwood Miners’ Institute on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 September.
