State Theatre New Jersey presents Sing-a-Long Grease, a unique, interactive screening of the movie musical Grease, marking the 40th Anniversary of the film. Complete with on-screen lyrics, the program—presented on the first day of summer—also includes a chance for the audience to dress up as T-Bird or Pink Lady and enter the costume competition for prizes.

“It’s the one that you want”, says producer Ben Freedman, who previously brought us Sing-a-Long Sound of Music. “Sing-a-long Grease is the show that audiences have been asking for since we first presented a sing-a-long show back in 1999.”

Grease’s hit songs include “Summer Lovin’,” “Grease Lightning,” “Beauty School Dropout,” and “You’re The One That I Want.” “Sing-a-Long Grease is much more than ‘just a movie,’” says Freedman.

Sing-a-long Greasers will be decked out in their own versions of 50s high school garb worn at Rydell High, including poodle skirts and saddle shoes, black leather biker and powder-pink bomber jackets, chiffon scarves, and skinny ties.

Every performance starts with a Sing-a-long host who warms up the audience, trains them how to “hand-jive,” deploy the contents of their free magic moments fun packs, and heckle in all the right places as well as judge the costume competition.
