Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950’s in this rollicking musical. Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin’”, “Hopelessly Devoted”, “Sandy” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.

An 8-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with innumerable school and community productions place Grease among the world’s most popular musicals. “GREASE” the musical premiered on Broadway in 1972 and played for 3388 performances becoming the longest running musical at the time and has triumphed throughout the world ever since. In 1978 “Grease” went on to become a hugely successful film, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newtown-John.
