Win tickets to Grease sing-along
PUBLISHED: 12:00 15 August 2014
TWO great comebacks in one night - everyone's favourite musical, Grease, is being shown at the return of Weston's Backyard Cinema.
Take a much-loved movie and add a party setting, whack them together and you have a recipe for a top night.
Grease really needs no introduction, such is its reputation. But just in case you live under a rock, it is a fun-filled film with a ridiculously catchy soundtrack.
It tells the tale of Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) and Danny (John Travolta), two 1950s high school students who fall in love over the summer.
But Danny is leader of the coolest gang in town, while Sandy is, well, a bit of a nerd.
When Danny shuns her to save his reputation, Sandy vows to win him back by donning some seriously outrageous leather trousers.
Get ready to belt out Greased Lightning, Summer Lovin’ and You’re The One That I Want, followed by a disco after the show. It will be shown at the Royal Hotel in South Parade, Weston, on August 23 at 7pm.
Tickets, priced £13.50, are available from www.backyardcinema.org.uk or from Coles Kitchen at 32 West Street.
