HIT musical Grease is heading for the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford.

One of the world’s best-loved shows, Grease is the tale of leather-clad greaser Danny and girl-next-door Sandy who, after a whirlwind summer romance, are reunited at Rydell High. Can they find true love once more?

The show has a much-loved score, bursting with hits including Summer Nights, Greased Lightnin’, Hopelessly Devoted to You and You’re the One That I Want.

Casting is yet to be announced.

A spokesman said: “Grease is back - grittier and more glamorous than ever before. It is brought to life by a fresh young cast who bring energy, vitality and passion to this ultimate musical classic.

“The first new production in 25 years of Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s iconic musical, this show is directed by Nikolai Foster and choreographed by Arlene Phillips.”

Grease originally opened in Chicago in 1971, followed by a move to Broadway in 1972, where it received seven Tony Award nominations, including one for Best Musical.

During the show’s eight-year run, at the time, little known actors including Peter Gallagher, Patrick Swayze and John Travolta all appeared in the production, with Richard Gere understudying many roles before going on to star as Danny Zuko in the 1973 London premiere.

The 1978 film adaptation starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John is the fourth highest-grossing live-action musical of all time and celebrated its 40th anniversary this year.

Grease will be at the Alhambra from March 29 to April 3, 2021. Call 01274 432000 or visit bradford-theatres.co.uk to book.
