AUSTRALIAN CAST ALBUM FOR GREASE

AUSTRALIAN CAST ALBUM FOR GREASE

Theatre producer John Frost and Universal Music today (August 4, 2013) announced that they will be releasing a cast album of GREASE featuring the new Australian cast. GREASE - The Australian Cast Recording will feature all the GREASE favourites, including You’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin’ and many more.

John Frost said, “Australian cast albums are a rarity these day, so I’m thrilled that Universal Music is as excited as I am to record and release a new GREASE album featuring our stunning cast. GREASE is a perennial favourite of musical theatre audiences – I’m often asked when I am bringing it back to the stage – and ticket sales are proving how popular it still is. So I’m sure many fans will want to take home the new cast album to remind them of the show.”

The new Australian production of GREASE stars musical theatre favourite Rob Mills as Danny and rising star Gretel Scarlett as Sandy, alongside Bert Newton as veteran disc jockey Vince Fontaine, Todd McKenney as Teen Angel, Anthony Callea as Johnny Casino, Val Lehman as Miss Lynch, Lucy Maunder as Rizzo and Stephen Mahy as Kenickie. The cast also includes Francine Cain (Frenchy), Eli Cooper (Eugene), Chris Durling (Doody), Antoniette Iesue (Patty), Sam Ludeman (Sonny), Duane McGregor (Roger), Laura Murphy (Jan), Karla Tonkich (Marty) and Andrea Arena (Cha Cha). Ensemble roles are played by Jared Bryan, Elisha Chin, Stefanie De Castro, Euan Doidge, Heath Keating, Mitchell Mahony, Natasha Marconi, Scott Morris, Shannon O'Shea, Daniel Raso, Stephanie Silcock and Jessica White.
