Grease and the last train journey

Senior School pupils atLathallan are heading back to the 1950s with their three-night production of ‘Grease’ the musical.

It started at the Johnshaven school on Tuesday and finishes today (Thursday).

‘We go together’, ‘Summer lovin’, ‘Beauty School Drop out’ and ‘Greased Lightnin’ have had the seniors singing and dancing for the three shows.

Musical director Kenny Hossick said; “Rehearsals for this fun, action packed, musical comedy have been going well with all the cast and crew working hard on the production. The pupils have been dedicated to making this a success and pupils on and off stage are looking forward to a successful show.”

A picture representing the last train journey between Inverbervie and Montrose on 22 May 1966 has also been presented back to the school.

All the boys of Lathallan School travelled on this train and alighted at Brotherton Halt. It was painted by the Reverend Frederick Kennedy of Montrose Old Church, presented to the School by Mr and Mrs Mather in 1967, and was restored by artist Roddy Larkin in 2013.

If any Old Boys can recall this final train journey, they are welcome to contact Mrs Andrea Watt, Head of Development and Alumni Relations at the school on 01561 362220 or email
