On Friday, June 15, the Louisville Palace will host Sing-a-long-a Grease, a unique, interactive show that marks the 40th anniversary of the original stage version of Grease. You’d better shape up to sing along to the great movie musical, complete with on-screen lyrics and the chance to become a T-Bird or Pink Lady for the night and enter the world famous costume competition!
Tickets are $20. Showtime is 7:00 p.m. – Doors open at 6:00 p.m. All ages are welcome. Service charges not included on ticket prices. Tickets subject to price increases. Tickets may be purchased at www.LouisvillePalace.com or at The Louisville Palace Box Office, 625 S. Fourth St.
“It’s the one that you want”, says producer Ben Freedman, who previously brought us Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music. “Sing-a-long-a Grease is the show that audiences have been asking for since we first presented a singalong show back in 1999."
“Sing-a-long-a Grease is much more than ‘just a movie’”, says Freedman. “”It’s an event, an interactive experience and the most fun you can have with your clothes on.”
Sing-a-long-a Greasers will be decked out in their own versions of fifties high school garb worn at Rydell High, including poodle skirts and saddle shoes, black leather biker and powder-pink bomber jackets, chiffon scarves and skinny ties. Costumes are most definitely encouraged, but singing is mandatory! Every performance starts with a Sing-a-long-a host who warms up the audience, trains them how to “hand-jive”, deploy the contents of their free magic moments fun packs and heckle in all the right places as well as judge the costume competition. “The rules are, there are no rules.”
The Birth of Sing-a-long- The unique, interactive entertainment form known as Sing-a-long-a, meanwhile, was allegedly born in an old people’s home in Inverness, Scotland. The nurses wanted to involve the residents in an interactive group therapy. They therefore wanted to screen Seven Brides For Seven Brothers and gave out song sheets so that everyone could sing-a-long. The idea was then developed in 1999, before opening at the Prince Charles Cinema in August of that year. After an initial eight-show run soon sold out, while attracting huge media attention, and regular shows has been running ever since all around the world. Now, finally, comes the dream union – between Grease and Sing-a-long-a!.
• Suitability for children: Grease is suitable for all. Children are very welcome, although evening performances can sometimes get a little lively and so may be more suitable for older children (plus the late finishing time may mean that younger ones get tired). Running time: 2 hours 20 minutes including pre-show warm-up!
