This musical with Danny and Sandy will burst onto the LST stage directed by Dave Dagenais with Jill Grundstrom on board as the joyous choreographer.

With familiar songs like: “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” “Sandy,” “You’re the One That I Want” and the title number, used as the show’s big, energetic opening, you will be humming all the way home!

If you like a little rock-n-roll and teen spirit, all taking place a few decades ago, then “Grease” is the word for you and you will be loving the memories of this show that has continued to appeal to successive generations.
