Grease had made its mark on the world; the romantic summer loving story between Danny and Sandy. The movie was released in 1978 and made a killing in the box office, fast forward to present time Grease the musical has made it’s way down under.
As the theatre quickly filled up for the show, many viewers and fans dressed for the perfectly occasion. We saw slicked back hair, leather jackets and colourful long skirts, bringing back the great era of the 1950’s. The show started with humour and laughter by Australia’s TV personality Bert Newton. Then the incredible and oh so talented cast came out with such high-energy which makes you want to get off your ass and start singing and dancing. Rob Mills and Gretel Scarlett played the two main characters Danny and Sandy. Rob’s cheeky personality and great performing talent were evident in the show, while Gretel Scarlett is an up and coming performer and already been in other musical such as Mamma Mia and Wicked. We can’t forget their co– stars, The Pink Ladies and Danny’s Boys who has us giggling at their charm and laughing at their wit.
People of all ages would enjoy the musical, while the kids would love the catchy tunes and dancing, the adults rejoice in the nostalgia of the original. The whole production from the music, set, costumes, and obviously the performers was an absolute joy to watch. I walked away wishing I was a beauty school dropout of Rydell High and born to hand jive.
