THE CLASSIC FILM WITH ON-SCREEN LYRICS SO EVERYONE CAN JOIN IN. IT'S THE ONE THAT YOU WANT!
SING-A-LONG-A GREASESaturday, January 25, 7:30 pm
The brand new sing-a-long-a version of the classic film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John brought to you by the producers of Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music. Ever wanted to know what it’s like to be a T-bird or a Pink Lady but never quite felt cool enough to pull it off? Well, now is your chance to don those pink jackets and let your inhibitions go for an evening where you are the stars and remember GREASE is the word…
The evening begins with your host leading a vocal warm-up before they show you how to use your free goody bag. You’ll even get a chance to learn how to hand jive. Then just sit back and watch Danny & Sandy and the gang, while singing and dancing along to the lyrics as shown on the screen.
It couldn't be easier… or more fun! Dressing up is strongly encouraged and full audience participation essential.
