Grease tour and cast announced
It's electrifyin'! The Number One Party Musical, Grease, is back this year with their feel-good tunes and a stunning cast to warm up the “Winter” Nights. The audience will enjoy, dance, cry and be enraptured by classic songs from the hit movie like You're The One that I want, Grease Is The World, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted to You, Grease Lightnin' and many more.
Rob Mills came to fame in his performance of Fiyero in the Broadway blockbuster Wicked in Melbourne and Sydney for two years. Mills has also starred as Warner Huntington III in the hit musical Legally Blonde in Brisbane and Melbourne. Gretel Scarlett's career is not as broad Mills' yet, but she has played support roles in great productions like Wicked and Mamma Mia. Sandy will be Scarlett's first starring role, thus it is an exciting leap in her career.
“Grease is one of my favourite musicals, and with this top draw cast of musical theatre stars I have no doubt it will again be everyone's favourite party musical,” John Frost said. “I'm thrilled that Rob Mills will be our Danny, straight from his success in Legally Blonde, and that we have found a new leading lady in Gretel Scarlett. Both Rob and Gretel gave sensational auditions, and our UK creative team knew instantly that they were the ideal Danny and Sandy. And it's wonderful again to be working with the wonderful Todd McKenney, the talented Anthony Callea and, for our sixth musical together, the irrepressible Bert Newton. What can I say about this cast – You're The One That I Want!”
Grease will on in Perth From 21 June 2014, then the musical will be moving on to Adelaide from 3 August 2014, Hobart from 5 September 2014, Melbourne from 6 December 2014.
