Dates: 2 January – 16 March 2014
Role: Sound Crew (Bump In)
Venue: Her Majesty’s Theatre

GREASE is the Number One Party musical, featuring all the unforgettable songs from the hit movie including You’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin’ and many more.

So get ready to dust off your leather jackets, pull on your bobby-socks and take a trip to a simpler time as “bad boy” Danny and “the girl next door” Sandy fall in love all over again.

“GREASE is one of my favourite musicals, and with this top draw cast of musical theatre stars I have no doubt it will again be everyone’s favourite party musical,” John Frost said. “I’m thrilled that Rob Mills will be our Danny, straight from his success in Legally Blonde, and that we have found a new leading lady in Gretel Scarlett. Both Rob and Gretel gave sensational auditions, and our UK creative team knew instantly that they were the ideal Danny and Sandy. And it’s wonderful again to be working with the wonderful Todd McKenney, the talented Anthony Callea and, for our sixth musical together, the irrepressible Bert Newton. What can I say about this cast – You’re The One That I Want!”

Fresh, engaging, intelligent’ (Theatre Press)

‘Tragically good’ (Julian Assange)

Lady Gaga is afraid.

After accidentally giving an STI to the world’s most famous hacker, Julian Assange, she thinks he might vengefully leak the sex tapes. To make amends, she turns up unannounced to the Ecuadorian Embassy with a plan, a plan to help him escape. But Julian doesn’t want a bar of it, not even a swath of her best europop anthems will ease his hurt. But as she refuses to leave and he can’t, deadlock ensues. What follows is a romp of epic pure-pop proportions. And when egos clash so do dogmas. The result: pandemonium.

Gaga V Assange is a new play with songs by William Hannagan, acclaimed cabaret performer and co-writer of HouseWarming (**** The Age) and Until Tomorrow (**** Theatre People).
