Get Ready to Travel Back in Time: Grease Takes the UK by Storm with National Tour

Grease is back and better than ever as it embarks on a UK tour, making stops in Bromley, Canterbury, and Dartford.

Get ready to relive the 1950s, slip into your Pink Ladies jacket, and sing along to your favorite songs as Rydell High comes to life on stage.

The musical, adapted from the popular West End show, will kick off its tour at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley for nine nights this April.

It will then return to the county in the fall, with dates at the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury and the Orchard Theatre in Dartford.

With choreography by former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips, this production features rising stars Marley Fenton and Hope Dawe in the lead roles of Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson.

Grease first hit the stage in 1971, but it was the 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John that made it a worldwide sensation. The film became the highest-grossing musical at the time and was nominated for an Academy Award and five Golden Globe Awards.

The story follows the summer romance of Danny and Sandy, who are unexpectedly reunited when Sandy transfers to Rydell High. But navigating high school cliques and expectations proves challenging for the two lovebirds, as they struggle to keep their relationship alive.

With iconic songs like “You’re the One That I Want,” “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” and “Greased Lightnin’,” this musical will have you singing and dancing in your seat.

Don’t miss your chance to see Grease at the Churchill Theatre from April 12 to 20, the Marlowe Theatre from September 9 to 14, and the Orchard Theatre from September 30 to October 5. Book your tickets now through the theaters’ box offices or online.
