First post-pandemic tour announcement
The first new production in 25 years of Jim Jacobs & Warren Casey’s iconic musical Grease will tour the UK and Ireland in 2021 in one of the first signs that major touring shows are starting to get back to post-Covid business.
Grease was due to tour in 2020 but was postponed, like dozens of other shows.
The 2021 tour will begin in Plymouth from January 22-30, and comes to the North for the first time at the Alhambra, Bradford, from March 29-April 3, followed by Liverpool Empire (April 5-10), Sheffield Lyceum (April 12-17) and Manchester Palace (June 7-19), among other theatres around Great Britain and Ireland.
Peter Andre, who appeared at some venues on the 2019 tour, will appear again at some performances in some theatres (including Manchester’s Palace Theatre) as Teen Angel and Vince Fontaine.
