Grease – The Arena Experience premiered in Newcastle on Friday night and the 800 excited students dancing and singing their hearts out did the Hunter Region proud.
There is talk of a world record being set for the biggest Grease cast ever.
The show is the brainchild of Harvest Rain Theatre Company, producers of the wildly successful Hairspray –The Big Fat Arena Spectacular, and the cast is a who’s who of Australian musical theatre. Singin’ In The Rain’s Meghan O’Shea and Drew Weston from Ghost The Musical play Sandy and Danny and Lauren McKenna swaps the can of hairspray for a Pink Ladies jacket as Jan. Jiving across the stage as Johnny Casino is three-time Golden Guitar Winner Travis Collins.
This timelessly funny story of 1950s teen love, cliques and peer pressure is a delight for all ages.
