Bankstown Theatre Company (BTC) are currently celebrating the musical GREASE through a colourful and high energy revival. This 1950’s styled stage hit is familiar to many of us from the film release of 1978 starring Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta and remains a favourite several generations of fans.

BTC follows the trend of recent stage revivals by including songs inserted for the film but not part of the original show by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey. In this performance the 1950’s musical genres are presented with desirable style by the band. Audiences will recognise the title track ‘Grease’ as written by Barry Gibb, Olivia Newton-John’s chart hit ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’ and ‘You’re the One That I Want’ from the film’s climax.

Squabbalogic’s MYSTERY MUSICAL starred JOHANNA ALLEN (Wicked), BLAKE ERICKSON (Forbidden Broadway), JESSICA JAMES-MOODY (Reefer Madness!), JOSIE LANE (Miracle City), MICHELE LANSDOWN (Drowsy Chaperone), GARRY SCALE (Carrie), ROWAN WITT (South Pacific), and the one and only NANCYE HAYES.
