FLINT — For two nights, audiences will be dazzled with the sights and sounds of Grease at The Whiting.
Nominated for the 2008 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, this new production, direct from Broadway, brings all of the familiar and favorite characters to the stage. Audiences will take a trip to a simpler time of poodle skirts, drive-ins and T-birds.
“Bad boy” Danny and “the girl next door” Sandy will fall in love all over again to the tune of many favorite songs, including “Summer Nights, “Greased Lightnin,” “We Go Together,” “Hopelessly Devoted to You” and “You’re the One That I Want.”
The performances are 8 p.m. Feb. 3-4. Tickets range from $23-67. Student rush tickets also are available. For $12 each, students age 16 and older (with a valid student ID), can purchase tickets to the best seats available on the day of the performance. Availability is not guaranteed as some performances may sell out. There is a limit of two tickets per student.
The performances of Grease are ASL interpreted. For more information on the show, visit GreaseBroadway.com. For more information on the upcoming performances, including tickets, visit www.TheWhiting.com.
