Peter Andre (Teen Angel) and Arlene Phillips (choreographer) recently joined newly cast Dan Partridge (Danny) and Martha Kirby (Sandy) at an exclusive event at City Varieties Music Hall to launch the first new production in 25 years of Jim Jacobs & Warren Casey’s iconic musical Grease which is set to premiere at Leeds Grand Theatre from Wednesday 19 June to Saturday 20 July 2019.
Pop and reality TV star Andre, and ex-Strictly Come Dancing judge Phillips, were in town for a whistle-stop tour of press calls and photo shoots, whilst Dan and Martha performed debut live versions of Sandy, Hopelessly Devoted To You and You’re The One That I Want.
In a Q&A with producer Colin Ingram, Andre commented that growing up Grease was his favourite musical, and to play the iconic roll of Teen Angel was an honour after playing Danny in a high school production, whilst Philips, who choreographed the original tour, said: “I’m so thrilled to have the opportunity to choreograph a new production of Grease. This new production is going to be edgy, vibrant and certainly takes a new look at this very exciting musical. The cast are incredible, many of them fresh out of college and ready to burst onto the stage.”
Grease is at Leeds Grand Theatre from 19 June to Saturday 20 July
