HILTON College drama and music departments, with Epworth High School, present Grease the Musical­ at the Hilton College Theatre on Sunday at 2pm, and on April 27 and 28 at 7pm.

The high-school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that pays homage to the idealism of the fifties, and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be “too cool for school”, grown up and rebellious.

At the heart of the story is the romance­ between Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski.

They had a secret romance in summer, but now back in the context of school, peer pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated.

The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, through hit songs Greased Lightnin’ and We Go Together­, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis­ Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.

Grease is among the world’s most popular musicals and has a cult-like following of all ages.

Put on your blue suede shoes and glad rags, and book your tickets­ at www.hiltontheatre.
