The world’s best-loved musical is back! Grittier and more glamorous than ever before!

Jim Jacobs’ and Warren Casey’s iconic and well-loved musical Grease comes to Northampton’s Royal & Derngate from Monday 13 to Saturday 18 May as part of an extensive UK and Ireland tour, after opening in the West End.

Following a whirlwind summer romance, the musical sees leather-clad greaser Danny and girl‑next‑door Sandy unexpectedly reunited when she transfers to Rydell High for senior year. But can they survive the trials and tribulations of teenage life and find true love once more?

With its phenomenal score, bursting with hits including Summer Nights, Greased Lightnin’, Hopelessly Devoted To You and You’re The One That I Want, this thrilling new version, directed by Nikolai Foster with choreography by Arlene Phillips, is brought to life by a fresh young cast who bring energy, vitality and passion to this ultimate musical classic.

Grease has been seen by over 500,000 people in the West End, making it the Dominion Theatre’s most successful summer run since We Will Rock You. The production received four WhatsOnStage Award nominations for Best Musical Revival, Best Choreography for Arlene Phillips and Best Supporting Performer in a Musical for original cast members Jocasta Almgill and Paul French.

So round-up your Burger Palace Boys, pick up your Pink Ladies, reignite your passion and get ready for an explosion of summer loving!
