That’s right everyone. The Grease Arena Spectacular is coming to Dunedin and it’s going to be awesome! The More FM Arena is going to be transformed for this three night musical extravaganza and you can still be a part of it! Tickets are still on sale and it promises to be a night you won’t forget as one of the largest creative teams ever assembled makes its way to Dunedin.
The cast of 40 will have you singing along to all the old classics from this original high school musical including You’re the One That I want, Greased Lightnin’, Summer Nights, Grease is the Word and more. All of your favourites will be there including Sandy, Danny, the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies and they will have you rocking along in what is being hailed as the freshest and most exhilarating performance of Grease in years.
Most of you will know all about Grease but just in case you don’t, here are a few of the facts you might not know:
- Premiered on Broadway in 1972
- Became longest running show in history of Broadway in 1979
- Transformed into a smash hit movie starring John Travolta in 1978
- Travolta also toured the US and Canada as a 17 yeard old in 1972 but he didn’t play Danny Zuko and instead took on the role of nerdy Doody
- When the show opened in London, the then unknown Richard Gere played the part of Danny
The musical is set at Rydell High and for three nights, the More FM Arena in Dunedin will be transformed back to the 70s as it hosts it’s very own high school reunion. Watch as the characters you know and love bring the show to life with their energy and electric performances.
If you are a fan of Grease, this is a night not to be missed.
