What's on in Dundee in June 2014

Event of the Month | Sing-a-long Grease
(7 June)


Celebrate (almost) the beginning of those Summer Nights with an evening of Greased Lightin’... “Tell me more, tell me more” I hear you say. If you enjoyed the movie then sing-a-long-a Grease is right up your street and it’s coming to the Dundee Rep Theatre for one night only on Saturday 7 June.

Your evening will begin with a vocal warm-up led by the sing-a-long-a host, who will also show you how to use your special Grease magical moments fun pack and teach you to hand-jive just like the T-Birds. The action then begins at Rydell High – join Sandy, Danny and the rest of the gang as you sing your heart out to those classic, show-stopping songs. For those who aren’t hopelessly devoted to learning every lyric before you go, all songs are fully subtitled so you can still sing-a-long-a to the songs you’re a little less familiar with.

Oh, and did we mention the host will also judge a fancy dress competition – will you be a stylish Pink Lady, a sweetheart Sandy or a rockin’ T-Bird? Dig out your leather trousers, pink jacket, wigs or poodle skirts for an evening where you are the Rock’n’Roll Party Queen. Wear your best Grease outfit to be in for a chance of winning and don’t forget Grease is the word. We would love to see your outfits so be sure to share them on our Facebook or twitter pages.

To celebrate, we’re giving away three tasty prizes – perfect if you’re going to Grease sing-a-long-a (but still a treat for those who can’t attend). Prizes include:

Coffee and cake for two A glass of wine and your choice of dish from our Bar Food menu A scrumptious three course pre-theatre dinner for two in Metro Brasserie.
