Adelaide audiences will have the opportunity to experience the high-energy, smash hit musical that has taken Australia by storm and includes such unforgettable songs as You’re the One that I Want, Grease is the Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted to You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin’ and many more.
John Frost said, “Rarely have I seen audience reactions like the ones we have been receiving every night for Grease with everyone in the aisles dancing and singing along. Grease truly is Australia’s Number One Party Musical, and now I’m delighted to give audiences in Adelaide the chance to sing-a-long and dance with Rob, Gretel, Todd, Bert and the gang on stage.”
Leading the all-star cast in the iconic roles of Danny and Sandy are born entertainer Rob Mills and rising star Gretel Scarlett. Bert Newton returns to his radio roots to play the role of slick veteran disc jockey Vince Fontaine, while Todd McKenney dusts off his dancing shoes to star as Teen Angel. Television and stage veteran Val Lehman (Bea Smith in Prisoner) returns to musical theatre to play Rydell High’s tough school Principal Miss Lynch.
Get ready to dust off your leather jackets, pull on your poodle skirts and take a trip to a simpler time as “bad boy” Danny and “the girl next door” Sandy fall in love all over again.
