Since its Broadway premiere and the hit movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, GREASE has achieved global success.

The production is known for its mix of adolescent angst, vibrant physicality, and 1950s pop culture. With classic songs including “Summer Nights,” “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” “You’re The One That I Want,” “Greased Lightnin’,” and “Grease is the Word,” GREASE promises a fast-paced and thrilling experience for audiences.

The production will showcase dazzling costumes and the beloved songs from the movie, providing a nostalgic trip back to the 1950s.
