There’s some fun news coming to the musical world and your all going to love it. FOX has opened casting for the upcoming production of Grease. And we are excited to announce that Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens are going to be in the production.
Grease is such a classic film and we’re super curious to see how Julianne Hough will portray the role of Sandy. And Vanessa Hudgens will be playing Rizzo—freaking sweet!
Julianne Hough is adorable and completely right when she said:
“Grease is one of the movies that made me want to be an entertainer, and I have literally been waiting my whole life to play Sandy. My siblings and I watched it and played it out over and over when we were kids. This is my dream role and performing it live on television will be one of the most thrilling opportunities I’ve had in my career so far.”
“Being Rizzo is something I’ve never imagined, and I love that because it will be a new challenge. She is such an iconic character that continues to transcend generations. I cannot wait to bring her to life on live television. I’m going to be a Pink Lady!”
Grease: Live is going to be the title of the production and it’s going to air on Jan 31st, 2016. It might be a year away but a good production takes time. We’re excited and congrats to the girls for landing those amazing roles!
