Grease was the watchword for the opening weekend, which kicked off with a full house for the preview night before a first “summer nights” night for the sold-out Saturday opening. Sunday’s daytime performance was equally packed, completing a successful first weekend of the three-week race. Audiences were amazed by Grease’s refreshing rock ‘n’ roll revival on the MTW stage, 50 years after the world’s most popular musical debuted on Broadway.

It was a star-studded Saturday night for Musical Theater West, with many nationally known celebrities and VIPs in attendance, such as Disney’s Adam McArther, “New Girl” star Chloe Noelle, Cartoon Network’s Jacob Hopkins, and more. . The VIP pre-show “summer nights” sock-hop set the stage for fun with a red carpet, live music and professional swing dancers showing off their moves. Many attendees wore Grease-inspired outfits to celebrate the big night.

There are ten more chances to see this fabulously fresh and joy-filled summer production, including a School Spirit night on Thursday, July 14 at 7:30 p.m., where the public is encouraged to don their school colors and other gear. There will also be an ASL performance of Grease on Friday, July 15 at 8 p.m. $15 student rush tickets will be available at the door 1 hour before the start of the show, with ID.
