Grease Is the Word
GREASE Is The Word – And it’s rockin’ Dublin this November
The No 1 Party Musical, GREASE, comes to the Gaiety Theatre in November. A new Irish production of the original high-school musical will be rockin’ Dublin and it promises to be truly ELECTRIFYIN'!
Since the show’s Broadway premiere in 1972 and the 1978 hit movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John – which went on to become the highest grossing movie-musical of all time – GREASE has triumphed across the globe, with its irresistible mix of unforgettable songs, dazzling dance moves, and 1950’s pop culture.
Now Festival Productions brings the hit musical to The Gaiety Theatre from November 5th 2014 for a limited run. GREASE is directed by Tony Finnegan, award winning Irish director of Annie, The Sound of Music and Jekyll & Hyde with music direction by David Hayes (RTE’s The Voice), and choreography by exciting new Northern Irish choreographer Rebecca Leonard.
It is a show bursting with energy and colour – featuring incredible fresh talent, vibrant choreography, and, of course, all those unforgettable songs from the movie including: Summer Nights, Sandy, Hopelessly Devoted to You, You’re The One That I Want, Greased Lightnin’, and Grease is the Word.
The role of Sandy was cast through a nationwide search on RTE’s John Murray Show, and won by Dubliner LAUREN NEVIN. She will play opposite CARL STALLWOOD as Danny Zuco – leader of the T-Birds. The legendary DICKIE ROCK will guest as Teen Angel – the role famously played by Frankie Avalon in the iconic movie.
So dust off your leather jackets, pull on your bobby sox, and take a trip to Rydell High, where the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies promise an electrifying show that will make you want to stand up and shout “A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop, A-wop-bam-boom!!”
