Grease is coming to selected Australian cities in 2013. Groove away to the multi million dollar production touring Brisbane's Lyric Theatre, from 27 August, 2013, Sydney's Lyric Theatre, from 13 October, 2013 and Melbourne's Her Majesty's Theatre, from 2 January 2014.
Promising electrifying costumes and all the favourite songs we have grown up with including Summer Nights, Sandy, Hopelessly Devoted to You, You're The One That I Want, Greased Lightnin' and Grease is the Word.
This show is said to be fast, furious and a load of fun.
Our own Rob Mills plays Danny, alongside Gretel Scarlett as Sandy.
We know and love Rob as Fiyero from Wicked, which played in Melbourne and Sydney for two years, and he comes to Grease after starring in the hit musical Legally Blonde in Brisbane and Melbourne.
Gretel Scarlett delighted us in Wicked and Mamma Mia!
Bert Newton plays disc jockey Vince Fontaine, with Todd McKenney as Teen Angel.
In the much loved role of rRydell High ock-star student, Johnny Casino, we find Anthony Callea.
The wild Pink Lady leader, Rizzo, will be played by Lucy Maunder (Dr Zhivago, The Threepenny Opera), and Kenickie by Stephen Mahy (Jersey Boys, I Will Survive).
Just came from seeing the dress rehearsal and loved everything EXCEPT for the casting of Bert Newton as Vince Fontaine! I think this is Sooooooo miscast! Now Bert is great and such a character, but Vince Fontaine is a little older than the cast, NOT old enough to be their grandfather!
