Grease: The Musical
It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. The 1950s high school dream explodes in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be rebellious, provocative and have fun.
At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance in summer, but now back in the context of school, peer-pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated.
Can Danny maintain his cool status and still make demure Sandy his girl?
The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, through such hit songs as "Greased Lightnin'", "We Go Together”, and “Born To Hand Jive”, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.
