The show is directed by Nikolai Foster with choreography by Arlene Phillips. The book, music and lyrics are by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey.

Grease originally opened in Chicago in 1971 and moved to Broadway in 1972, where it was nominated for seven Tony Awards. The famous 1978 film adaptation starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, becoming the fourth highest-grossing live action musical of all time.

Peter Andre is well known for his successful career in music and television. He became the sixth highest selling artist in the UK in the ’90s with the number one hits ‘Mysterious Girl’, ‘Flava’ and ‘I Feel You’.

Peter said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be returning to the UK tour of Grease and to the iconic role of Teen Angel this year. I had the most wonderful time last year working with our genius director Nikolai Foster and the incredible Arlene Phillips, helping create a new, slick, sexy version of this timeless musical with the most talented cast.”

Grease also stars Dan Partridge as greaser Danny Zuko.
