studio58-greaseVancouver, BC - Langara's nationally renowned professional theatre training program Studio 58 proudly presents a production of the original Grease, directed by Peter Jorgensen. One of the most popular musicals of all time, Grease transports us back to Rydell High’s spirited class of ’59 where gum chewing, hubcap stealing, hot rod loving boys with D.A.’s and their wise cracking ladies capture the look and sound of the 1950’s in this rockin’ show.

While hip Danny and wholesome Sandy sort out their mutual attraction, the gang sings and dances its way through nostalgic scenes like the pyjama party, the prom, the burger palace, and the drive-in movie.

"Grease is an iconic movie that comes with all sorts of expectations," said Jorgensen. "By working with the original script and score, I am aiming to let go of all those expectations and discover this show as if for the first time, and Studio 58 is the ideal setting for this to take place."

Peter Jorgensen (Avenue Q, The Full Monty, The Light in the Piazza) makes his Studio 58 directorial debut with this production. He is joined by a cracker jack creative team, including musical director Courtenay Ennis (Avenue Q, Songs for a New World, The Last Five Years), choreographer Kayla Dunbar (The Park, Stationary: A Recession Era Musical), set designer Omanie Elias (Oklahoma, Hello Dolly, Will Rogers Follies), costume designer Jessica Bayntun (Avenue Q, The Light in the Piazza, It’s a Wonderful Life) and lighting designer Alan Brodie (Spring Awakening, Julius Caesar, Tear the Curtain).
