Photo Flash: First Look at GREASE at the Paramount Theatre

GREASE opened at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Aurora September 12.  BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production photos below.  The show runs through October 7, 2012. 

The ultimate celebration of the teen years, Grease, book, music and lyrics by Jim Jacobs and WarRen Casey, strikes a universal chord with its hand-jivin' mix of schoolhouse rock, adolescent angst and vibrant physicality. Set in the hip 1950s on Chicago's Northwest side, the whole gang has reported to class: Danny, Sandy, Frenchy, Rizzo, Kenickie and the rest of the student body at Rydell High. Nominated for 11 Tony Awards, and without question the world's most famous movie musical, Grease boasts hit after hit: "Summer Nights," "Beauty School Drop Out," "Hand Jive," "You're the One that I Want," and of course "Greased Lightnin'," along with those big, glorious, action-filled dance numbers.

Michael Unger directs along with music director Michael Keefe and choreographer Dana Solimando
