A rock n’ roll celebration of growin’ up and falling in love in the fabulous fifties. Based on the electrifyin’ Broadway and Hollywood smash-hit!
It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. The too-cool-for-school “Burger Palace Boys” are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking “Pink Ladies” are looking hot in bobby sox and pedal pushers. At the heart of the story is the romance between greaser Danny Zuko and the new girl Sandy. They shared a secret summer romance, but now back in school, peer-pressure makes their love a bit more complicated. The show features hit songs such as “Greased Lightnin'”, “We Go Together”, and “Summer Nights”, recalling the music that became the soundtrack of a generation. Starting off with an eight-year Broadway run, Grease is among the world’s most popular musicals!
Kasey RT Graham directs the show. Graham returns to TexARTS having previously directed Wait Until Dark. His impressive resume includes serving as Resident Director of the US Nat’l Tour of Phantom of the Opera, Associate Director of the Broadway revival of On the 20th Century starring Kristin Chenoweth and currently acting as Assistant Director of the upcoming Broadway revival of The Secret Garden. Joining Graham will be New York-based choreographer Christopher Shin from the Broadway production of Mary Poppins.
