'Sing-a-long-a Grease'


---- —

NEWBURYPORT, MA —The Firehouse Center for the Arts will host Sing-a-long-a Grease, when the unique, interactive show rolls into town, marking the 40th anniversary of the original stage version of Grease. Be a part of this fun-filled event on February 10, at 1:00 p.m. at Market Square, Newburyport, MA.

Now is your chance to be the diva you always wanted to be! Come sing along to the great movie musical, complete with on-screen lyrics and the chance to become a T-Bird or Pink Lady for the night and enter the world famous costume competition. Grease (1978) is the American musical film directed by Randal Kleiser and produced by Paramount Pictures based on Warren Casey's and Jim Jacobs's 1971 musical of the same name.

Sing-a-long-a Greasers are invited to attend decked out in their own versions of fifties high school garb worn at Rydell High, including poodle skirts and saddle shoes, black leather biker and powder-pink bomber jackets, chiffon scarves and skinny ties. Costumes are most definitely encouraged, but only the singing is mandatory!

This performance starts with Firehouse Sing-a-long-a host extraordinaire John Budzyna (Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music) who will warm up the audience, give some instruction on the finer points of how to “hand-jive”, deploy the contents of your free goodie bags, and heckle in all the right places; as well as judge the costume competition. So grab your Brylcreem and get you, your best girl and your hot rod over to the Firehouse -- you don't want to miss this!

Tickets are on sale now ($24.00 Adults, $22.00 Seniors / Students $20.00 Members) and may be purchased in person at the Box Office (Wed.-Sun., 12:00-5:00 p.m.), by calling 978-462-7336, or online at www.firehouse.org.
