Starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, "Grease!" is a 1978 musical about two lovers in a 1950s high school that come from very different backgrounds. Danny and Sandy meet and fall in love over the summer, but are surprised to see each other back at school that fall. Danny is Mr. Tough Guy around his friends, but Sandy knows his softer side that he wants to keep well hidden from his peers. Will Danny risk his reputation so he can be with Sandy?
Successful both critically and at the box office, "Grease!" had the second best-selling soundtrack album when it premiered in 1978. With music that is easy to sing to and hard to forget, audiences will enjoy singing along with the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies to "Summer Nights," "Greased Lightnin" "You're the One That I Want" and many others, as the words are projected on the film screen. According to the movie review site Rotten Tomatoes, "'Grease!' is an energetic musical with infectiously catchy songs and an ode to young love that never gets old."
Based in Lawrenceville, Theater To Go is a full-service theatrical Production Company. Known for murder mysteries and comedy shows, the company's performances emphasize improvisation and audience participation. This will be its second interactive film presentation at Kelsey.
