Grease the Musical announces its Melbourne and Sydney cast

Your summer nights are sorted! Grease the Musical is coming back to Australian shores just in time for the New Year, and has recently announced cast and ticket details for its Melbourne and Sydney runs.

From a Broadway mainstay to an iconic film starring Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta, Grease has stood the test of time and still gets audiences singing and dancing up on their feet. This dazzling new stage production will bring all the electrifying songs you know and love to life, including Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted to You, You’re the One That I Want, Greased Lightnin’, Grease is the Word and many more.

Grease has always been about having fun and coupled with the much-loved songs and choreography, I know that this will be the party musical that everyone is talking about for a long time to come,” says producer John Frost.

Whether you’re a T-Bird or a Pink Lady, get ready to witness Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson fall in love all over again. Lighting up the stage as lovebirds Danny and Sandy will be the wickedly talented Joseph Spanti (Friends! The Musical Parody and Cruel Intentions: The 90’s Musical) and Annelise Hall (The Marvellous Elephant Man). They’re joined by stage and screen icons Patty Newton as Miss Lynch, Jay Laga’aia as Vince Fontaine and Marcia Hines as Teen Angel.

About the cast, producer John Frost added; “This is a spectacular cast that we have assembled with some of Australia’s best performers who will knock your socks off with their high energy performances of Grease’s most loved and unforgettable songs. I know Australia will fall in love with Annelise and Joseph just like they did with Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta in the movie version”.
