Cary’s Booth Amphitheatre will host Sing-a-long-a Grease, when the unique, interactive show rolls into town, marking the 45th anniversary of the original stage version of Grease.
You’d better shape up to sing along to the great movie musical, complete with on-screen lyrics and the chance to become a T-Bird or Pink Lady for the night and enter the world famous costume competition.
“It’s the one that you want”, says producer Ben Freedman, who previously brought us Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music. “Sing-a-long-a Grease is the show that audiences have been asking for since we first presented a singalong show back in 1999.”
Sing-a-long-a Greasers will be decked out in their own versions of fifties high school garb worn at Rydell High, including poodle skirts and saddle shoes, black leather biker and powder-pink bomber jackets, chiffon scarves and skinny ties. Costumes are most definitely encouraged, but singing is mandatory!
Every performance starts with a Sing-a-long-a host who warms up the audience, trains them how to “hand-jive”, deploy the contents of their free magic moments fun packs and heckle in all the right places as well as judge the costume competition. “The rules are, there are no rules.”
Suitability for children: Grease is suitable for all. Children are very welcome, although evening performances can sometimes get a little lively and so may be more suitable for older children (plus the late finishing time may mean that younger ones get tired).
Running time: 2 hours 20 minutes including pre-show
