Grab your Brylcreem, your best girl and hot rod over to the FH for another Sing-a-Long-a event!
Friday, May 3, 7pm
The Firehouse Center for the Arts will host Sing-a-long-a Grease, when the unique, interactive show rolls into town, marking the 40th anniversary of the original stage version of Grease.
Now is your chance to be the diva you always wanted to be! Come 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.
“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 sing-along show back in 1999.”
Now, at last, Summer Lovin’, Grease Lightning and the chance to sport a pink wig or carefully sculpt a pompadour or a duck's tail while belting out You’re The One That I Want, are coming to the Port City when the Firehouse presents Sing-a-long-a Grease in the historic community theater on Market Square.
"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 only the singing is mandatory!
This performance starts with Firehouse Sing-a-long-a host extraordinaire John Budzyna (Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music) who will warm up the audience, give some instruction on the finer points of how to “hand-jive”, deploy the contents of your free goodie bags, and heckle in all the right places; as well as judge the costume competition. So grab your Brylcreem and get you, your best girl and your hot rod over to the Firehouse -- you don't want to miss this!
