Product Details

What: Grease (sing-a-long version)

Tell me more about the gig: Join us as we sing-a-long to the beloved 1978 musical with Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta.

After summer holidays the kids are back at high school. Danny’s (Travolta) undisputed position at the top of the social pecking order comes under threat when his chaste Aussie summer fling Sandy (Newton-John) unexpectedly enrolls as an exchange student. Young love is pitted against cliquey politics through some of the most memorable musical numbers ever.

The soundtrack boasts several unforgettable songs, including "Greased Lightnin'," "Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee," "Summer Nights," the Academy Award -nominated "Hopelessly Devoted to You," "Beauty School Drop Out" and, of course, the eponymous title track “Grease.”

The night will also feature a live band and flashmob

What about Covid? The City of Parramatta Events and Festivals Unit is registered as a COVID Safe business. They take the health and well-being of their patrons and the greater community seriously and they are managing all events in accordance with specific COVID Safety Plans and the latest advice from NSW Health.

Due to the evolving nature of the Covid-19 pandemic and legislation, requirements may change from one day to the next. Consequently, the City of Parramatta may need to make changes to these Conditions of Entry from time to time.

What about bad weather?: As this is an outdoor event it’s best to prepare for all elements. In case of light or intermittent rain, the film will still go ahead as planned.
