One of the world’s most popular musicals, with its cult-like following, hits The Palace Theatre!

Grease comes to town February 23 through March 18 and AARP members and their guests receive a $10 per Adult ticket discount.  The discounted performances will be held at The Palace Theatre, 80 Hanover Street, in downtown Manchester.  Performances will be held at both 2:00 and 7:30 pm.

It’s 1959 and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form.  The too-cool-for-school Burger Palace Boys are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking Pink Ladies are looking good in bobby sox and pedal pushers.  The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be provocative and rebellious.  At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski.

They had a secret romance in summer, but now back in the context of school, peer-pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated.  Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still make Sandy his girl?

The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, through such hit songs as Greated Lightin’, We Go Together, and Summer Nights, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.

AARP members and their guests can purchase discounted Adult tickets online or by calling 603 668 5588.  Tickets can also be purchased at the box office.  To receive the $10 per Adult ticket discount, use the code ACTIVE.
