What’s the highest-grossing musical of all time? Grease! Could it get any better than the 1978 original? You bet! The State screens the newly restored and remastered favorite so be sure and join hundreds of other Grease fans when they sing along to the best high school musical ever.
The Sing-A-Long is scheduled for Saturday, June 16. Doors open at 3 p.m. and the film at 4 p.m.; the State Theatre is at 1307 J St., Modesto.
Dress up as your favorite character from the film and dance in the aisles while Rydell High’s most famous graduating class – including greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta), good girl Sandy Olsen (Olivia Newton-John), the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies – romp their way through a summer of love. If you’re longing for a return to the good old days of the ‘50s, come to The State and sing away your cares to favorites from “You’re The One (That I Want),” “Summer Nights,” and “Beauty School Dropout,” to the now-famous “Greased Lightning.”
Tickets are $5. For online ticket sales go to www.thestate.org. To purchase your tickets by phone call The State Box Office at 209-527-4697 from noon to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. If still available, tickets may also be purchased the day of the event up to the start of the presentation.
