Grease

Grease – January 28-February 1, 2015 at the Mesa Arts Center

It’s time to dust off your leather jackets, pull on your bobby-socks and take a trip to a simpler time as ‘bad boy’ Danny and ‘the girl next door’ Sandy fall in love all over again. It’s the original High-School musical, featuring all the unforgettable songs from the hit movie including You’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin’ and many more. So throw your mittens around your kittens and hand-jive the night away with the show that’ll make you want to stand up and shout, ‘A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop A-wop-bam-boom!’
