ALTAR BOYZ's Celaya Passes GREASE Reality Show 1st Round

Jason Celaya, who made his New York theater debut as Matthew in Altar Boyz, has been among the first selected on the road to Broadway in the new NBC series, "GREASE: You're the One That I Want." TV's newest reality show is casting the leads for a Grease revival to be directed by Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall.

Celaya's regional credits include Annie Get Your Gun (Frank), West Side Story (Bernardo), Fiddler on the Roof (Fyedka), and Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat (Joseph). He danced with Origins dance company, and has choreographed for other dance companies all over the nation, as well as for the Utah Jazz Girls (NBA). He also recorded with Sony Records. Television credits include "Everwood," "Touched by an Angel," and the Disney channel original, "Personal Private Journal."

Celaya replaced original cast member Scott Porter, currently starring in "Friday Night Lights," also on NBC.

Altar Boyz, the acclaimed musical comedy at New World Stages, winner of the coveted Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical Off-Broadway, is the longest running new musical comedy to open in New York in years, about to celebrate its second anniversary! Full of sharp parody, sinfully spectacular dancing, and irreverent humor, this spoof about a heavenly guy-group is adored by audiences and critics alike. With an extraordinary mix of side-splitting songs "convincing enough to be played on MTV," uncontrollable laughs and lighthearted fun, this award-winning and totally original new musical is 90 minutes of pure delight that's suitable for all ages and will have the whole family laughing and singing along. The National Tour continues, opening in Austin on Tuesday.
