Worcester, MA (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts will bring GREASE SING-A-LONG-A to Worcester on Friday, October 26 at 7:30pm. Hosted by three-time Central Massachusetts Entertainer of the Year, Dale LePage, tickets to this unique, interactive show are on sale now.
You’d better shape up to 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.
“It’s the one that you want,” says producer Ben Freedman, who previously brought us “Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music.” “GREASE SING-A-LONG-A is the show that audiences have been asking for since we first presented a singalong show back in 1999.”
Now, at last, Summer Lovin’, Grease Lightning and the chance to sport a pink wig or greased quiff while belting out “You’re The One That I Want,” are coming to a theater near you.
“GREASE SING-A-LONG-A is much more than ‘just a movie’,” says Freedman. “”It’s an event, an interactive experience and the most fun you can have with your clothes on.”
Sing-a-long-a Greasers will be 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 singing is mandatory!
The show kicks off with Central Massachusetts' Entertainer of the Year for three years in a row, Dale LePage, who will warm up the audience, train them how to “hand-jive,” deploy the contents of their free goodie bags, heckle in all the right places, and judge the costume competition. “The rules are, there are no rules.”
The Birth of Sing-a-Long
The unique, interactive entertainment form known as Sing-a-long-a, meanwhile, was allegedly born in an old people’s home in Inverness, Scotland. The nurses wanted to involve the residents in an interactive group therapy. They therefore wanted to screen “Seven Brides For Seven Brothers” and gave out song sheets so that everyone could sing-a-long.
The idea was then developed in 1999, before opening at the Prince Charles Cinema in August of that year. After an initial eight-show run soon sold out, while attracting huge media attention, and regular shows has been running ever since all around the world.
Tickets to GREASE SING-A-LONG-A are $12*. Tickets are available online at TheHanoverTheatre.org, by phone at 877.571.SHOW (7469), or at The Hanover Theatre box office located at 2 Southbridge Street in downtown Worcester.
