Okay – fangirl alert.
The one and only Peter Andre is coming to Leeds Grand Theatre to star in Grease. No, he’s not Danny. Though wouldn’t that be weird and wonderful? He’s playing Teen Angel, with the big number Beauty School Dropout set to be his star moment.
I don’t know anything else about the production yet, other than it’s directed by Nikolai Foster and choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing’s Arlene Phillips. I expect there’ll be some big casting announcements coming very soon.
Peter Andre’s known for his pop career first and foremost, with Mysterious Girl setting his name up in lights before he got all involved with Jordan (aka Katie Price), jungle antics and reality TV. He’s been touring a bit, but nothing spectacular, so let’s hope this musical turn will get his name back on the scene.
Catch Peter on 19th – 22nd June, 26th – 28th June and 17th – 20th July 2019. Don’t worry, the show’s running in between those dates, too, but the big guy’s just turning up for limited appearances.
Take a look at the Leeds Grand Theatre website for upcoming information.
