It's 1959, and Rydell High School's senior class is in rare form. The too-cool-for-school 'Greasers' are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking 'Pink Ladies' are looking hot in bobby sox and pedal pushers. The 1950's high school dream is about to explode in the rollicking musical that is both a homage to the idealism of the 50's and a satire of high schoolers' age-old desire to be provocative and rebellious. At the heart of the story is the romance between teen heart-throb Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. Following a summer romance, Sandy and Danny find themselves at the same school, where peer-pressure and cliques make their romance a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and make Sandy his girl?
The musical follows Danny and Sandy's relationship, while they sing 'Summer Nights', and other hits such as 'Grease', 'Grease Lightnin', 'We Go Together' and 'Hopelessly Devoted To You, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. Starting off with an 8 year Broadway run, 'Grease' is among the world's most popular musicals and has a cult-like following, especially among teens.
