Toronto’s Hit Revival Of Grease Returns In Time To Celebrate The Iconic Movie Musical’s 40th Anniversary

Return to an era of pink ladies and slicked back hair with Grease the Musical, live in Toronto! The 2017 production that captivated audiences returns to Toronto’s historic Winter Garden Theatre for another limited run Thursday, May 24th, 2018​.

Tickets are now on sale at greaseonstage.com/tickets.

After a 2017 run that saw packed houses and ecstatic audiences for over three months, the production was forced to close for upgrades to the Winter Garden Theatre. 55,000 audience members saw Grease the Musical this past fall, and producers David Galpern, John Kelly and Charles Roy believe this signals that there is a place in Canada for their new theatre company.

Hundreds of Facebook fans petitioned for the show’s return using the hashtag #BringGreaseBack. Grease’s May 24th return wouldn’t be possible without these fans who made their love for the show known – some who saw the show during its run, and others who didn’t yet get the chance.

This thrilling production, created by internationally acclaimed Broadway choreographer and director Josh Prince, returns Grease to the streets of 1950s Chicago and incorporates the most beloved songs from the 1978 film in breathtaking new arrangements from Las Vegas icon Phil Burton of Human Nature.

All the characters are brought to life by a star-studded cast. Janel Parrish (Pretty Little Liars) embodies girl-next-door Sandy, with her 50’s bubble-gum naivety and sweeter than sweet vocals. Theatre favourite Matthew Helfer (Criminal Minds, How To Be A Vampire) shines as gorgeous greaser Danny Zuko, the guy that every boy wanted to be and every girl wanted to date. Supported by a cast packed with musical talent, chosen by Larissa Mair (Degrassi) and Primetime Emmy Award Winner Robert Ulrich (GLEE), including:
