Join Danny and Sandy, along with the sassy Pink Ladies, super-cool Burger Palace Boys and the rest of the gang at Rydell High for this electrifying rock ‘n roll show.

When Danny, a popular tough guy, and Sandy, a shy good girl, go back to school after a summer fling, Sandy finds that Danny is a different boy to the one she knew and must decide whether they really do ‘go together’.

Grease is the original high-school musical, packed with explosive energy and dance routines and vibrant 1950's fashion and pop culture.  BATS brings you the mega-mix classics: Summer Nights, Greased Lightning and We Go Together – as well as all of the songs from the original film: Grease (is the Word), Hopelessly Devoted to You, Sandy, and You're The One That I Want.
