STAND by for two weeks of leather jackets, hand jives, milk shakes and a gallons of grease as York Light brighten up these cold winter nights with plenty of summer lovin’ in Grease at York Theatre Royal from February 13 – 23.

Grease is still the word, nearly 50 years after the musical made its Broadway debut and four decades after the movie version starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John broke box office records across the globe.

It remains as popular as ever, not least because of the hit parade of songs that includes Greased Lightnin’, You’re The One That I Want, Hopelessly Devoted To You and Summer Nights.

The Pink Ladies and the T Birds will assemble once more for a new term at Rydell High where, after a whirlwind summer romance, tough greaser Danny and girl-next-door Sandy are unexpectedly reunited when she transfers to Rydell High for senior year.

What will Danny’s gang of greasers the T Birds think when they find out? And what will sassy Rizzo, top girl of the Pink Ladies, say about Sandy’s unlikely summer romance?

This is the first time York Light have staged Grease and the cast features a host of fresh faces and new talent
