Sliders and milk shakes, a classic car show, "Greaser" and "Pink Lady" costume contests and the incomparable Sha Na Na in their doo-wop and rock 'n' roll concert will mark the 35th Anniversary of the ever popular movie Grease, at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, April 25, at 8 p.m. In the John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John epic, Sha Na Na performed as "Johnny Casino and the Gamblers", and they are well known for their hits "Blue Moon", "We Go Together", "You're the One That I Want", "Whole Lotta' Shakin' Goin' On" and many more. In an interactive evening where the audience sings and dances along and participates in a "Greaser Olympics", this is a great show for the entire family to enjoy together. The fun starts at 7 p.m. in the parking lot with the cars and a costume contest! The "best dressed" will get their picture taken with Sha Na Na.

The Ridgefield Playhouse event is sure to get people up and out of their seats dancing!
