GREASE THE MUSICAL TEARS INTO CARDIFF THIS AUTUMN FOR A WEEK OF LIVE SHOWS Guaranteed TO PUT A SPRING IN YOUR STEP AND A SMILE ON YOUR FACE.
The iconic Wales Millennium Centre is finally back open and ready to welcome visitors once again and what better show to get us back in the theatre than the all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza, Grease the Musical. Eveyone’s favourite musical, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John won our hearts in the classic 1978 film bursting with phenomenal hits including Summer Nights, Greased Lightnin’, Hopelessly Devoted To You and You’re The One That I Want.
This year the film is celebrating 40 years and what better way to join in the celebrations than seeing the live action show right here in South Wales. The fresh young cast will bring the ultimate musical score to life with a vibrant, dazzling and action packed show.
After a whirlwind summer romance, leather-clad greaser Danny and girl-next-door Sandy are unexpectedly reunited when she transfers to Rydell High for senior year. But can they survive the trials and tribulations of teenage life and find true love once more?
Back by popular demand after being postponed due to the pandemic, the smash hit show directed by Niko-ai Foster and choreographed by Arlene Phillips comes to Wales Millennium Centre from 22nd to 27th November.
If you need another reason to book a ticket, Peter Andre will be starring as Teen Angel – joining the cast in Cardiff to also p-lay Vince Fontaine. Peter Andre said “I was so thrilled to have been returning to Grease this year as I had the most wonderful time on the last tour working with our incredible cast and creative team, I can’t wait to get back out there performing with them. Grease is joyous and will truly allow you to escape to a different time, with show-stopping dance routines and some of the most iconic songs of all time. It’s a show about solidarity and it celebrates friendship, which is even more important now with how the last 12 months have been. As the song goes, We Go Together!”
GREASE originally opened in Chicago in 1971, followed by a move to Broadway in 1972, where it received seven Tony Award nominations, including one for Best Musical. During the show’s eight-year run, at the time, little known actors including Peter Gallagher, Patrick Swayze and John Travolta all appeared in the production, with Richard Gere understudying many roles before going on to star as Danny Zuko in the 1973 London premiere. Every production of Grease is unique and brings something different to the show and this one is no different, it promises to be grittier and more glamorous than ever before.So round-up your Burger Palace Boys, pick up your Pink Ladies and re-discover why Grease really is the one that you want.
