Grease’s UK Tour is here. The world’s greatest musical, is back and better than ever. The original high school musical is a West End production that features Tom Parker. Parker is a key member of the Wanted, the UK’s top boy band. Parker will take on the role of Danny.
Danielle Hope plays the role of Danny’s love interest, Sandy.
The cast’s experience shines on the stage with Parker using his vocals to ignite the crowd. World famous, Parker began his career in 2009, and his band, The Wanted, produced three platinum albums. Parker’s bad boy look is perfect for the role of the leather wearing Danny.
Hope is a highly trained actress that debuted as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. Jumping right into leading roles, she has been in several big-name productions, including Les Misérables and The Last Five Years. Hope is also an accomplished musician that won Over The Rainbow, taking on 9,000 other girls. Her win led to her releasing the hit single Over The Rainbow. She has also made several appearances on television, including appearances on The One Show and Tonight’s the Night.
Grease is a mega production with 140 costume changes and sets that will provide the musical’s backdrop.
The love story comes to life on stage with the show starting with the entire cast singing Grease is the Word. Parker doesn’t show any signs that this is his first major production. He works hard on stage, and it comes through with an amazing performance that John Travolta would be proud of seeing. Hope’s talent leads the show with a stunning rendition of Hopelessly Devoted to You.
The song is a highlight of the show.
Grease the Musical is filled with high-energy, feel-good music. The cast’s “big hair” and “big skirts” will bring the audience back to the 70s.
The musical is never a dull moment with the night’s songs including Greased Lightnin’, Summer Nights, Sandy and You’re the One That I Want among the night’s performances.
Rizzo, a fan favorite, is played by the witty and talented Louisa Lytton. Lytton has been performing since a young age and is a prodigy from Sylvia Young Theatre School. The former EastEnders star has an impressive resume with credits including The Bill, American Pie, The Edge of Heaven, Fractured and several others.
An accomplished dancer, she brings flare to the musical offering a rendition of Rizzo that the audience will appreciate.
Grease is back with tour dates spanning through the end of 2017.
