Grease Cast (232 KB)
This popular show, loved and recognised the world over is a nostalgic pastiche of the 1950s and promises to be fast, furious, energetic ... and fun, fun, fun.
The production, with its iconic songs, dance numbers and snappy dialogue will bring back the look and sound of the teenage world of the late 1950s with glee. While hip Danny Zuko and wholesome Sandy Dumbrowski resolve the problems of their mutual attraction for each other, the gang sings and dances its way through such nostalgic scenes as the pyjama party, the prom, the burger palace, and the drive-in movie. Classic songs include; Summer Nights, Greased Lighting and Beauty School Dropout.
The show had its Broadway première in 1972 and has triumphed internationally. In 1979 Grease took over the record as the longest-running show in the history of Broadway and the hit film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John proved to be the highest-grossing movie musical ever.
Grease has maintained its everlasting popularity, proving that teenage angst and love's young dream remain timeless.
With a large student involvement from all year levels of the College as performers, musicians and crew the stage will once again be set for a great night in the theatre.
