As part of the Discovery Pop Series, this light-hearted, fun-loving medley of five songs from the Broadway-classic, Grease, is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Including the well known tune of the title song, Grease, the iconic duets Summer Nights and You’re the One That I Want, the familiar ‘rama lama lama ka dingitty ding de dongs’ of We Go Together, and Rock’n’Roll Party Queen, this clever arrangement by Roger Emerson for SATB (Soprano, Alt, Tenor, Bass) Voices and Piano accompaniment with optional Guitar chords, will have audiences on their feet throughout. Best effects are achieved when all songs are performed together, as intended, but these fifties-inspired numbers are just as successful individually. Performance time is approximately 6 minutes.
Grease first opened in 1971, in Chicago, but was soon moved to Broadway, where the story of the students of Rydell High remains the 15th longest running show. The multiple revivals and adaptations make it a staple on all levels of theatre.
The film-adaptation of the same name, released in 1978, starring John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing and Jeff Conaway was highly successful both critically and at the box office, keeping it the No. 1 highest-grossing musical in the United States to date. With the announcement of a three-hour live television broadcast of Grease in 2016, this score is not only guaranteed to be fun to rehearse and perform, but is also more relevant than ever!
