GREASE is back in Hobart!

Derwent Entertainment Centre - Tuesday, April 08, 2014

When Grease - The Arena Spectacular came to Hobart in 1998 it quickly became the DEC's largest attended musical theatre performance ever! Now it time slick your hair back again as Grease - The Music brings Australia's #1 party musical back to Hobart!             

Get ready to dust off your leather jackets, pull on your bobby-socks and take a trip to a simpler time as “bad boy” Danny and “the girl next door” Sandy fall in love all over again. After sold out seasons in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, Grease - The Musical is bringing all the joy and excitement back for a new round of sing-alongs featuring all the hits likeYou’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin’ and many more.

Producer John Frost said “Rarely have I seen audience reactions like the ones we have been receiving every night for GREASE, with everyone in the aisles dancing and singing along."

Leading the all-star cast in the iconic roles of Danny and Sandy are born entertainer Rob Mills and rising star Gretel Scarlett. Bert Newton plays the role of slick veteran disc jockey Vince Fontaine, while Todd McKenney dusts off his dancing shoes to star as Teen Angel. All-American, rock-star Johnny Casino is being played by John Paul Young, and Val Lehman returns to musical theatre to play Rydell High’s tough school principal Miss Lynch.

With 5 shows across three big days, Friday 5th to Sunday 7th September, you'll still have to get in fast to make sure you don't miss out. This promises to be one of the biggest events of the year and if the last time Grease came to Hobart is any indication perhaps our biggest musical theatre performance yet!
