Singer, songwriter and presenter Louise Redknapp will play Teen Angel in Jim Jacobs & Warren Casey’s iconic musical Grease, which returns to the Dominion Theatre in London’s West End from 2 June 2023. Redknapp will perform from 2 June until 29 July, excluding Mondays.
Producers are also delighted to announce the return of 2022 cast members Dan Partridge as Danny, Olivia Moore as Sandy and Jocasta Almgill as Rizzo.
Grease is directed by Nikolai Foster and choreographed by Dame Arlene Phillips, with further casting to be announced.
Louise said “As the biggest fan of Grease growing up I was thrilled to be asked to join the cast in the role of Teen Angel. Traditionally seen as a male role, I’m excited to be given the opportunity to shake it up and play it from a new perspective under the direction of Nikolai Foster.”
In 2022, Grease was seen by over 500,000 people in the West End, making it the Dominion Theatre’s most successful summer run since We Will Rock You. Grease recently received 4 WhatsOnStage Award nominations for Best Musical Revival, Best Choreography for Arlene Phillips and Best Supporting Performer in a Musical for original cast members Jocasta Almgill and Paul French.
This production of Grease is dedicated to the memory of Olivia Newton-John, who sadly passed away in August 2022.
Grease has designs by Colin Richmond, orchestrations and musical supervision by Sarah Travis, lighting design by Ben Cracknell, sound design by Tom Marshall and Richard Brooker, video and projection design by Douglas O’Connell and casting by David Grindrod CDG.
