The Newton County Arts Association is proud to present "Grease." A musical that will feature performance groups Oxford Youth Singers and Oxford Singing Children. Two different versions of the show will be performed by each group.

The Oxford Singing Children will perform the school version of "Grease" on April 13 at 7 p.m. and April 14 at 4 p.m. Tickets for adults are $10, $8 for senior citizens and $5 for children and students.

"This version of the play is for families that have small children," said Executive Director of the Newton County Arts Association Buncie Lanners. "All of the minor adult conflicts that happen in the regular "Grease" have been removed so that the program can be enjoyed by people of all ages."

The Oxford Youth Singers will perform a version of "Grease" based off the Broadway production on April 19 and 21 at 7 p.m. Another showing will be on April 22 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and $5for students and children.

"This will be the PG version of ‘Grease,'" said Marketing Director Michelle Bryant Johnson. "It's more for families with older children."

The Arts Association decided to let their spring performance be "Grease" due to the musical being popular amongst all generations.

"‘Grease' is going to be exciting," Johnson continued. "We are going to be showcasing local talent and will be bringing Broadway theatre to Covington."

Tickets can be purchased online at or at the Arts Association main office at 1106 Washington Street Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. starting next week.
"The musical is appealing to everyone that is young at heart," Johnson continued. "We are all very excited for the upcoming production."

The Newton County Arts Association is a non-profit organization that runs off purely donations from people in the community. "Grease" was put together thanks to General Motors, Beaver Manufacturing, United Bank, Acuity Brand Lighting, and Bridge Stone Golf.

"Thanks to everyone's hard work, it's going to be a fun, eventful evening," Lanners said.
