Gary Lamont to star as Teen Angel in Glasgow
Grease is the word for Glaswegian star Gary Lamont (River City) who joins the cast of Grease for two weeks only to play the role of Teen Angel. Gary will take on the role during the tour’s dates at the King’s Theatre, Glasgow, 9-20 May 2017.
Gary, who debuted at the King’s in December 2016 as Dandini in the phenomenally successful Cinderella, joins the previously confirmed Tom Parker (The Wanted) takes on his first musical theatre role, playing Danny Zuko, Danielle Hope (Over the Rainbow winner) who plays Sandy and Louisa Lytton (Strictly Come Dancing, EastEnders) who plays Rizzo.
Since opening on Broadway in 1972 and the smash hit movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, Grease’s place has been firmly established in the cultural Hall of Fame, having seduced the hearts of millions with its back-to-back sizzling tunes. It’s the original high-school musical featuring everyone’s favourite characters - Sandy, Danny, the groovy T Birds, the sassy Pink Ladies and the whole gang at Rydell High - and all the unforgettable songs from the hit movie including You’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted to You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin’ and many more.
Voted the “No 1 Greatest Musical” in a recent poll, Grease has proved that a musical love story, bursting with denim, cheerleaders, slick hairstyles, rock’n’roll, 1950’s pop culture and an irresistible mix of teenage angst and young romance is timeless and universal. Grease is the ultimate feel-good, pick-me-up musical - an electrifying extravaganza, packed with fun, energy and vibrant physicality. The show is guaranteed to thrill audiences and leave everyone hand-jiving the night away with “A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop, a wop-bam-boom!”
This award-winning production originally opened in the West End in 1993 where it enjoyed a hugely successful run of 6 years at the Dominion and Cambridge Theatres. The show has since toured throughout the world playing to sell-out audiences and breaking box office records everywhere, having been seen by over 12 million people in the UK alone.
