Cool Rider, the unofficial sequel to Grease, will have a 10th anniversary concert at the London Palladium on 14 April.
The musical parody grew its cult following of fans after playing two nights only at London’s Lyric Theatre in 2014, followed by a one-week-only run at the Duchess Theatre due to popular demand.
The cast will include Aaron Sidwell, Ashleigh Gray, Kitty Scott-Claus and Grease 2 original star Maxwell Caulfield.
Grease 2, the 1982 movie sequel of Grease, tells the love story of Stephanie Zinone, leader of the Pink Ladies, and English transfer student Michael Carrington. The musical follows their road to romance from bowling alley to burger joint, sing-a-long-a-sex education class to talent show, and long romantic motorcycle rides to a luau ending.
Just like in the film, the concert production centres on the couple and how the only way they can be together is by Michael becoming a T-Bird.
Expect to hear songs such as Who’s That Guy?, Score Tonight, Cool Rider, Girl for All Seasons and Rock-a-Hula Luau (Summer Is Coming).
