Grease is the Word!

About the Show

It was 40 years ago, in 1978, that ‘Grease’ the movie was released and became an unexpected, runaway success. Before that, in 1971, Grease the live musical was originally performed in Chicago, USA. The original production was a raw, vulgar and aggressive show. Subsequent productions were sanitized and the context diluted. In its current format, ‘Grease the musical’ is still quite an education for Tribe teens to understand how society was in 1959 and to see how far we have come with equality of the sexes and society’s expectations. None of our cast members were born in 1978, but their parents will clearly remember the impact the movie, the characters and the songs had on the world at the time.

Grease offers young performers the opportunity to discuss controversial social issues and to explore characters far removed from their own lives. This cast has relished the opportunity
to be challenged and they have developed outstanding characters and performances. When working with young adults set the bar high, they will reach it. And they did.
