You can join the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies this October in Manchester, as Grease the musical has made its way to the Opera House theatre!

Directed by Nikolai Foster, with book, music and lyrics by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, the show tells the classic story of high school, leather-clad greaser Danny, who is reunited with his summer love, girl-next-door Sandy, when she unexpectedly transfers to Rydell High for senior year.

Coming from completely different backgrounds, the two must face each of their realities, giving just a little to get a lot if they want to make their romance work.

This sensational new production is choreographed by former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips, with all of the classic songs brought to life by a fresh young cast and a stunning score.

Peter Andre joins the cast at select dates as Teen Angel and Vince Fontaine, bringing some slick showbiz to proceedings, whilst an incredible roster of stage talent build up the main cast and ensemble.
