Don’t Just Watch ‘Grease’ Thursday: Sing Along, Dress Up for the Costume Contest, Go to the Reception

Download PDF

Rydell High’s most famous graduating class is going back to school (you could call it the 40th anniversary reunion). The highest-grossing musical of all time, Grease (1978), returns to the big screen as a sing-a-long at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 9 at Avon Theatre in Stamford.

But there’s a lot more than that: You can dress up in 1950s clothing for the costume contest with prizes, and you can go to a 6:30 p.m. reception sponsored by Lucky’s Classic Burger & Malt Shop (who else?).

Join Danny and Sandy with your own crew of T-Birds and Pink Ladies for a carnival ride back to those amazing summer nights!

Starring John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing, Jeff Conaway, Didi Conn, Frankie Avalon and Sid Caesar, and directed by Randal Kleiser, the 110-minute sh0w is rated PG-13.

Tickets are $13 for non-members, $8 for members and $10 for students and seniors.
