Grease Bristol Hippodrome New Production of Musical Returns City
Iconic musical Grease, will be coming to the Bristol Hippodrome next year as part of a UK and Ireland tour. The show had been due to tour this year but was postponed due to coronavirus.
The new production will feature Peter Andre as Teen Angel and Vince Fontaine at some venues – including the Bristol date.
The new tour kicks off at Theatre Royal Plymouth in January next year, before reaching Bristol Hippodrome and running from 08 – 13 February 2021.
Peter Andre said “I was so thrilled to have been returning to Grease this year as I had the most wonderful time last year working with our incredible cast and creative team. Sadly, this year’s tour had to be postponed due to COVID-19 but I’m overjoyed that we can return in 2021. Grease is joyous and will truly allow you to escape to a different time, with show-stopping dance routines and some of the most iconic songs of all time. It’s a show about solidarity and it celebrates friendship. As the song goes, We Go Together!”
This production of Grease is directed by Nikolai Foster with choreography by Arlene Phillips and designs by Colin Richmond. Orchestrations and musical supervision is by Sarah Travis, lighting design by Ben Cracknell and sound design by Tom Marshall.
Grease is one of the most loved musicals of all time, opening in Chicago in 1971, before a move to Broadway where it received seven Tony Award nominations. During the show’s eight-year run Peter Gallagher, Patrick Swayze and John Travolta and Richard Gere all performed in the show before they were famous. And of course, there’s the 1978 movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.
