Sing to Grease Saturday

Thirty-five years after release, it’s still clear why Grease was such a hit back in 1978.

Thirty-five years after release, it’s still clear why Grease was such a hit back in 1978.

Who thought musicals couldn’t be cool?

This musical singalong is perfectly cast with great show-stopping tunes such as Alma Mater, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted to You, La Bamba and Whole Lotta Shaking Going On just to name a few.

The songs are dubbed on the bottom of the screen so it’s easy to sing to these catchy, campy tunes and join in the fun between the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies.

The inventively choreographed musical numbers make Grease as fresh and exciting today as it was when it first released.

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.

Dress in character, get ready for a fantastically fun evening of singing and laughing.

John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John are part of an energetic cast of a cliché high school plot filled with swagger and imagination.

It’s California! It’s the beach! This singalong is an ode to young love that never gets old.

This extremely popular annual sing-a-long event this Saturday is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Courtenay and Square 1 Travel.

Tickets for this 7 p.m. performance are available at the Sid Williams Theatre box office or online at info@sidwilliamstheatre.com.

All proceeds go to St. Joseph’s General Hospital pediatric ward for critical care equipment.
