Grease is the word and the audience gets to sing all of them! Slick back your hair and put on your poodle skirts and leather jackets as the audience gets to join in on the fun and sing along to all of the songs of the classic moviel Grease, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.
You’d better shape up to sing along to the great movie musical, complete with on-screen lyrics and the chance to become a T-Bird or Pink Lady for the night and enter the world famous costume competition.
“It’s the one that you want”, says producer Ben Freedman, who previously brought us Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music. “Sing-a-long-a Grease is the show that audiences have been asking for since we first presented a singalong show back in 1999.” Now, at last, Summer Lovin’, Grease Lightning and the chance to sport a pink wig or greased quiff while belting out You’re The One That I Want, are coming to MPAC. “Sing-a-long-a Grease is much more than ‘just a movie’”, says Freedman. 'It’s an event, an interactive experience and the most fun you can have with your clothes on.”
Sing-a-long-a Greasers will be decked out in their own versions of fifties high school garb worn at Rydell High, including poodle skirts and saddle shoes, black leather biker and powder-pink bomber jackets, chiffon scarves and skinny ties. Costumes are most definitely encouraged, but singing is mandatory!
Every performance starts with a Sing-a-long-a host who warms up the audience, trains them how to “hand-jive”, deploy the contents of their free goodie bags and heckle in all the right places as well as judge the costume competition. “The rules are, there are no rules.”
