Dig out those poodle skirts and leather jackets for a Grease Sing-A-Long at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion August 15. This special sing-a-long presentation of the original motion picture begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 for lawn seating and covered seating is available for $10 and $15. Tickets are required for this event.
At this unique and interactive show, guests will experience the movie on The Pavilion’s LED screens, complete with animated lyrics displayed at the bottom. This family-friendly version is suitable for all ages. Sit back and watch Danny, Sandy and the gang, while singing (and dancing) along to the lyrics on the screen to hit songs like “You’re the One That I Want,” “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” and, of course, “Greased Lightning.”
Attendees are encouraged to come decked out in their own versions of fifties high school garb worn at Rydell High, including poodle skirts and saddle shoes, black leather and powder-pink jackets, chiffon scarves and skinny ties. The best costumes may be chosen to go on stage for a costume contest during the pre-show entertainment by comedian John Wessling, who has been featured on “Last Comic Standing,” “Comedy Central Roast” and Oddball Comedy Festival at The Pavilion in 2013.
Pre-concert activities start at 6:30 p.m. with The Pavilion Partners, Fidelity Investments, Woodforest National Bank, Century 21 Realty Partners, Renewal by Andersen and Audi of America, official automobile of The Pavilion. Guests are welcome to have a picnic at their seat or on the hill, but beverages cannot be brought into The Pavilion. For guests sitting on the hill, lawn chairs will be provided free for this event.
