Some of Australia’s favourite performers are joining 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 in the hit musical set to open in Melbourne on 31 December 2023 and in Sydney from March 2024.
They will be 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 made famous by Olivia Newton-John. Melbourne’s own 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, played by John Travolta in the movie version of the much-loved musical.
Set to be Melbourne’s big summer musical, tickets go on sale for the Melbourne season of the brand-new production, opening at Her Majesty’s Theatre from 31 December, on Friday 23 June. Tickets go on sale for the Sydney season on Friday 21 July, where it will debut at the Capitol Theatre March 2024.
“This is a spectacular cast that we have assembled with some of Australia’s best performers who will knock your socks off with their high energy performances of GREASE’s most loved and unforgettable songs. I know Australia will fall in love with Annelise and Joseph just like they did with Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta in the movie version and I can’t wait for you all to be part of the fun and electrifying energy of one of the favourite musicals of all time,” said producer John Frost.
