The producers of the upcoming production of Grease at the Dominion Theatre have hit us with some very exciting casting announcements.
The show, which opens on 17th May, with previews from 3rd May, will star Peter Andre in the role of Vince Fontaine.
This will be Peter’s first full role in a West End musical, though he has had a taste of the boards when he guest-starred in Thriller Live at the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue.
Also announced in starring roles are Dan Partridge as Danny and Olivia Moore as Sandy.
Grease marks a special milestone for Olivia Moore as she takes the major leading lady role. She has previously understudied for leading lady roles, most notably in Waitress, where she gave standout performances. This production is sure to mark an important transition in her career.
Jocasta Almgill will be performing the powerful song, “There are worse things I could do”, in the role of Rizzo, and Eloise Davies will be our “Beauty School Dropout”. The Pink Ladies also star Lizzy-Rose Esin-Kelly as Marty and Mary Moore as Jan.
The Burger Palace Boys (T-Birds, if you’re a fan of the film adaptation) will star Paul French as Kenickie, Jake Reynolds in the role of Doody, and Damon Gould plays Sonny.
Peter Andre says: “I’m beyond excited to be making my West End debut playing Vince Fontaine in Grease at the beautiful Dominion Theatre. Grease is such an iconic musical and we can guarantee audiences will have the most wonderful evening listening to songs we all know and love. We can’t wait to see you there!”
