Summer Nights have never been such a blast as the first new production in 25 years of Grease got off to a lightnin’ start at Leeds Grand Theatre with several red-carpet events and stars of stage and screen in attendance.
Panto and Good Old Days favourite Billy Pearce, Emmerdale stars Bhaskar Patel and Charlotte Bellamy, Fat Friends The Musical cast members Jodie Prenger, Natalie Anderson, Neil Hurst and Jonathan Halliwell and BBC Look North presenter Amy Garcia joined packed houses to watch Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s iconic musical Grease, produced by Colin Ingram, directed by Nikolai Foster and choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing’s Arlene Phillips.
