MAJOR MUSICAL ANNOUNCEMENT

GREASE to return to Australia from January 2024

A brand-new stage production that is truly ELECTRIFYING!

 

You better shape up Australia because a brand-new production of the number one party musical GREASE is set to debut as Melbourne’s summer musical at Her Majesty’s Theatre from January 2024 and the Capitol Theatre, Sydney from March 2024!

Packed with explosive energy and a soon-to-be-announced star cast, GREASE returns to Australian stages in a multi-million dollar production that’s truly electrifying!

Featuring dazzling costumes and all those unforgettable songs from the movie, including Summer Nights, Sandy, Hopelessly Devoted to You, You’re The One That I Want, Greased Lightnin’ and Grease is the Word, GREASE really is “fast, furious and thrilling, an injection of raw energy… and fun, fun, fun!” (The Daily Mirror, UK).

I am thrilled that GREASE, one of the world’s all-time favourite musicals, is returning to Australia in a brand-new production featuring an all-Australian creative team. 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,” said producer John Frost.

Since the show’s Broadway premiere and the hit movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, which went on to become the highest grossing movie-musical of all time, the Tony Award nominated GREASE has triumphed across the globe, with its irresistible mix of adolescent angst, vibrant physicality and 1950s pop culture.

At the time that it closed originally on Broadway in 1980, GREASE’s 3,388-performance run was the longest musical in Broadway history, and with the addition of the recent Pink Ladies series currently on Paramount, GREASE is officially the most expansive cinematic universe derived from a stage musical.

Following the stage premiere, the musical has famously been produced for the screen and inspired both a 1982 film sequel and a 2007 competition reality series, Broadway revivals of the stage show as well as numerous international productions.

Casting announcements will be made in the coming months.
