Grease coming to Sid

It’s California! It’s 1959 and the Greasers and the Pink Ladies are back at Rydell High.

It’s California!  It’s 1959 and the Greasers and the Pink Ladies are back at Rydell High.

This contemporary fantasy about a 1950s teenage musical is a larger, funnier, more imaginative Hollywood movie with a life all its own. In 2008, Grease was selected as one of the 500 greatest movies of all time with the song Hopelessly Devoted to You nominated for an Academy Award for Best Musical-Original Song.

Other chart toppers in this sing-a-long musical are Love Is A

Many Splendored Thing, Alma Mater, Greased Lightning, La Bamba, You’re the One I Want and so many more.

The songs are dubbed on the bottom of the screen so it’s easy to sing to these campy, catchy tunes. The inventively choreographed musical numbers make Grease as fresh and fun today as it was

when released in 1978.

This 7 p.m. Jan. 19 performance at the Sid Williams Theatre is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Courtenay and Square 1 Travel.  Tickets can be purchased at the Sid box office or online at info@sidwilliamstheatre.com. All proceeds go to the St. Joseph’s Hospital pediatric ward for critical care equipment.

Dress in character, get ready for a fantastically fun evening of

singing and laughing to these great show-stopping songs in a movie that is perfectly cast.
