Following the success of last year’s Gala Charity Film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Christchurch Round Table present another absolute classic that is bound to have you rockin’ in your seats and all in aid of Christchurch Round Table Children’s Wish charity. Prior to the main film, there will be a short presentation film about Children’s Wish, to highlight the work that is done in granting wishes to children with life threatening illnesses. Grease is renowned for great songs, great dance numbers and a great romantic storyline set in small town USA during the fabulous Fifties. John Travolta excels as the macho young dude who, in between hot rod racing and rock ‘n’ rolling, falls in love with the ultimate girl next door, Olivia Newton John, whilst at summer camp in the sunshine state of California. What the two lovebirds don’t know is that their holiday romance is about to hit the buffers. Neither of them realise that they both attend Rydell High School, where Travolta leads the greaser gang called the T. Birds and La Newton John is a member of the prim and proper Pink Ladies group. When they first meet again at Rydell High, she finds that he is not the same guy she fell for on holiday. Will the inevitable culture, image and personality clash contrive to ruin true love? Both Grease and its soundtrack proved to be instant hits way back in 1978 and have become evergreen favourites for successive generations of film fans. The title tune of Grease by Frankie Valli says it all, but there’s many more hits to enjoy, including Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Greased Lightening, Blue Moon, Hound Dog, Rock ‘n’ Roll Is Here To Stay, Tears On My Pillow, You’re The One That I Want and La Bamba. You will be welcomed with a glass of bubbly (over 18 years of age only) before the performance.
