It doesn’t seem like the musical Grease ever gets old as the first new production in 25 years, directed by Nikolai Foster and choreographed by Arlene Phillips, prepares to hit the road next year featuring Peter Andre as Teen Angel at certain performances.
Following a sold-out eight-week run at Curve, the staging of Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s musical Grease will tour the UK and Ireland. Further casting to be announced.
Nikolai Foster said:
“We are looking forward to working alongside Jim Jacobs, Colin Ingram and Arlene Philips on the return of our critically-acclaimed, Made at Curve production of Grease. Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s musical is an electrifying celebration of the birth of cool and teenage culture. It provides a gripping snapshot of a country on the cusp of social change, all set to one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll scores ever written. Curve audiences love Grease and we are immensely proud to be sharing our production with audiences across the UK.”
The tour will open at Leeds Grand Theatre from 19 June to 20 July, making it the longest-running visiting production in the theatre’s history. Grease will then play Southend, Sunderland, Birmingham, Glasgow, Leicester, Dublin, Oxford and Bromley. Peter Andre will appear at certain performances in Leeds, Southend, Sunderland, Birmingham, Leicester, Dublin, Oxford and Bromley.
