ECHS’ production of “Grease” continues through Saturday at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts on Lower Fayetteville Road. Tyler Gillett and Hannah Rose are two of the ECHS students starring in the production. 


East Coweta High School’s production of “Grease” will continue through Saturday at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts in Lower Fayetteville Road in Newnan.

The school’s spring musical opened on Thursday and will have performances 7 p.m. tonight and Saturday.

This production is ECHS Theater Director Scott Ondovchik’s fourth since taking over the program this year, and he hopes it will continue to expose the community to theater.

“We want to do a variety of stuff, and not do the same things as other schools,” he said.

Ondovchik said “Grease” was his introduction to theater and he hopes this production allows it to be that introduction for someone else.

“Grease” has 60 ECHS students involved including cast and crew members. Ondovchik said these students run all aspects of the production.

“I want students to continuously learn and be exposed to scripts and music,” Ondovchik said of his hopes for this production. “I want to expose the community to theater, allow my students to learn, and to fine-tune their craft.”

Tickets for today’s and Saturday’s performances are $8 for students and senior citizens and $10 for everyone else.
