“We are beyond excited to bring ‘Grease: The Musical’ to the St Joseph’s stage,” said Juliet Coman, school principal. “The energy, enthusiasm, and talent of our students will, I believe, make this a truly standout performance. It’s a production filled with heart, humour, and the infectious spirit of the 1950s”.

Founded in 1950, there are over 720 students in St Joseph’s Secondary School in Tulla. The school is rooted in the Christian tradition of the Mercy Order and is now under the trusteeship of CEIST (Catholic Education An Irish School’s Trust).
