Grab your favorite Pink Lady and travel back to when beehives were in and coifs were cool. “GREASE,” one of Broadway’s longest running musicals, takes a hilarious, tuneful and loving look at what it was like growing-up in the super-cool ‘50’s with the funniest gang of high school students you’ll ever meet.

Taking place in a time when hot-rod-loving boys in black-leather jackets chased boy-crazy girls in white bobby socks and pedal pushers, “GREASE” is complete with drive-in passion pits, sock hops, pajama parties, hubcap stealing and sneaking cigarettes at the senior prom.

“GREASE” brings back the classic rock ‘n’ roll sounds of the fifties with songs including “We Go Together,” “Greased Lightnin,” “Beauty School Dropout” and “Summer Nights.”  And for those of you who cannot get enough of “GREASE” special arrangements have been made to include three songs from the hit movie. “Hopelessly Devoted to You” and “You’re The One That I Want” (by arrangement with Warner/Chappell Music) and Barry Gibb’s “Grease” (by arrangement with BMG Music Publishing). Come early and have fun with the coolest of cool dee-jays, Vince Fontaine, as he spins your favorite tunes from the era at the best dance party in town!

“GREASE” is the story of Danny Zuko, king of the Burger Palace Boys and Sandy Dumbrowski, the wholesome, naïve and pretty transfer student whose life changes forever after meeting the tough yet vulnerable Rizzo, leader of the Pink Ladies gang.

“GREASE” was written by Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs. Direction is by Ray DeMattis, choreography by Christopher Gattelli, set design by James Youmans, costumes by Wendall Goings, lighting design by Mike Baldassari and sound design and musical direction by Steve Bishop. “GREASE” is produced by Phoenix Productions; co-producer is Magic Arts and Entertainment.

“GREASE,” Broadway’s record-breaking sensation, promises to be the hottest ride in town!
