Horizons To Host “Grease” Singalong

By Staff | Aug 9, 2019

In 1978, the movie “Grease” starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John was a huge hit on its first release. Now, at last, Summer Lovin’, Grease Lightning and the chance to sport a pink wig or greased quiff while belting out You’re The One That I Want, is coming to the Riviera Theatre in Emmetsburg.

Horizons Unlimited will host this fun and entertaining event. The “Gease” sing-a-long is a unique, interactive show. Proceeds will go toward adults with disabilities served by Horizons Unlimited.

Those attending are encouraged to dress in their own versions of the 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. ?Costumes are most definitely encouraged, but singing is mandatory!

“It’s the one that you want,” says producer Ben Freedman, who previously brought the Sing-a-long “Sound of Music” to the public.

“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. Sing-a-long ‘Grease’ is much more than ‘just a movie’,” Freedman says. “It’s an event, an interactive experience and the most fun you can have.”

You’d better shape up to sing along to the great movie musical, complete with on-screen lyrics and the chance to become a T-Bird or Pink Lady for the night and enter the world famous costume competition.

Every performance starts with a sing-a-long host who warms up the audience, trains them how to “hand-jive,” distributes the contents of their free magic moments fun packs and lets the audience know when to heckle in all the right places. “The rules are – there are no rules.”

This very entertaining event is Saturday, Sept. 21, at 2 p.m. The doors to the Riviera Theatre open at 1:30 p.m.

Tickets are $17 in advance and $20 at the door. Limited seating is available, so purchasing tickets in advance is recommended.

Tickets may be purchased at the Horizons Unlimited office at 2107 Main Street, Emmetsburg, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Sponsorship for this event is also available by contacting Lori Morey at 712-852-2211, ext. 104, or Ron Askland at 712-852-2211, ext. 110.
