GREASE Officially Opens in Sydney Tonight

The Sydney season of the spectacular new production GREASE, which critics have called “close to perfection” (Broadway World) and a “bucket list production that should not be missed” (Theatre Matters), will have its official opening night premiere tonight at the Capitol Theatre.

Some of Australia’s favourite performers have joined the cast of the multi-million dollar stage production of GREASE, including Patti Newton as Miss Lynch, Marcia Hines as Teen Angel and Jay Laga’aia as Vince Fontaine, which opens tonight in Sydney before Perth and Brisbane seasons. Final tickets are on pre-sale from today, with general public tickets on Friday 5 April

They are joined by Sydney’s Annelise Hall, who most recently featured in The Marvellous Elephant Man as well as Aspects of Love at the Hayes Theatre, in the coveted role of Sandy. Joseph Spanti, best known for Friends! The Musical Parody and Cruel Intentions: The 90’s Musical, will be donning the famed black leather jacket as Danny Zuko.

Also joining the gang at Rydell High includes Keanu Gonzalez (Hamilton) in the role of bad boy Kenickie, Mackenzie Dunn (Hairspray) as leader of the Pink Ladies Rizzo, Mikayla Williams (Legally Blonde) as the perky Patty Simcox and Gareth Isaac (Mary Poppins) as nerdy Eugene. The iconic Pink Ladies includes Brianna Bishop (Hairspray) as Marty, Catty Hamilton (The Rocky Horror Show) as Frenchy and Caitlin Spears (Hairspray) as Jan, while Andy Seymour (The Phantom of the Opera on Sydney Harbour) as Roger, Harry Targett (Hairspray) as Sonny and Tom Davis (The Book of Mormon) as Doody are donning the famed leather jackets as the T-Birds.

Additional cast members joining the star-studded line-up include Fabian Andrés, Oscar Bridges, Laura Joy Bunting, Cristina D’Agostino, Axel Duffy, Zoe Ioannou, Madeleine Mackenzie, Conor Putland and Rose Shannon-Duhigg.

Featuring dazzling costumes and all those unforgettable songs from the movie, including Summer Nights, Sandy, Hopelessly Devoted to You, You’re The One That I Want, Greased Lightnin’, and Grease is the Word, GREASE really is the one that you want.
