Iconic musical Grease, finally hits the Bristol Hippodrome this month, as the show continues its UK and Ireland tour. The city will also be playing host to Peter Andre, who is scheduled to perform on certain dates as Teen Angel/Vince Fontaine.
The popularity of the show hasn’t waned since it originally opened in Chicago in 1971. Following a move to Broadway in 1972, it received seven Tony Award nominations and featured the then little known actors of Peter Gallagher, Patrick Swayze and John Travolta, with Richard Gere understudying before taking the role of Danny Zuko in the 1973 London premiere.
Reflecting on its hit status, Peter Andre said that it is a show that celebrates ‘friendship’.
“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.” he said.
“It’s a show about solidarity and it celebrates friendship, which is even more important now with how the last 12 months have been. As the song goes, We Go Together!”
This production has been directed by Nikolai Foster and choreographed by Arlene Phillips. Design is by Colin Richmond, orchestrations and musical supervision by Sarah Travis, lighting design by Ben Cracknell and sound design by Tom Marshall.
The show will be at the Bristol Hippodrome from 21 – 25 September 2021
