It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class have returned from Summer recess. The too-cool-for-school “T-Birds” are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-popping, chain-smoking “Pink Ladies” are making waves in bobby sox and pedal pushers. The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an affectionate homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be provocative and rebellious. At the heart of the story are streetwise heart-throb Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret Summer romance… Now, back in school, peer-pressure, gossip and ancient reputations make their love affair a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still make demure Sandy his girl? We’re pretty sure you already know the answer! Grease is among the world’s most popular musicals with songs you’ll know and love to hear over and over again. This is the first time that LOS Musical Theatre have staged this family favourite so come and join the fun!
