Grease is the word – and it’s back for an encore! The iconic musical is getting the stage treatment again with a brand new production making its way to Melbourne and Sydney next year. Get ready for all the summer lovin’ when the multi-million dollar production debuts at Melbourne’s Her Majesty’s Theatre from January 2024 before opening at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney from March.
Grease the Musical
Based on the iconic 1978 film, the story follows the high school experiences of Danny Zuko (John Travolta) and girl next door Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John) and their brief summer fling. The classic has since inspired a 1982 film sequel starring Michelle Pfeiffer and more recently the upcoming Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies show on Paramount+.
Expect all your favourite songs to feature including Summer Nights, Sandy, Hopelessly Devoted to You, You’re The One That I Want, Greased Lightnin’ and Grease is the Word.
“Grease has always been about having fun and coupled with the much-loved songs and choreography, I know that this will be the party musical that everyone is talking about for a long time to come,” producer John Frost said.
Cast announcements will be made soon. In the meantime, head here to sign up for the waitlist.
