OMAHA, NEBRASKA – (July 26, 2016) – The new summer movie series continues at the Orpheum Theater when Omaha Performing Arts presents Cox Sing-Along-a [sic] Movies: Grease. The Tuesday, August 2nd show starts at 6:45 p.m. with a costume contest followed at 7:00 p.m. with the movie, all sponsored by Cox Communications. Tickets are $5 for children 12 and under and $10 for adults. They are available at the door and in advance on line at TicketOmaha.com, by calling 402.345.0606 or at the Ticket Omaha Box Office or inside the Holland Performing Arts Center, 12th and Douglas.  

The Sing-a-Long-a craze started in the United Kingdom in 1999 and has become a worldwide hit, playing to packed houses across the globe with over 10,000 performances in 11 different countries. Sing-a-Long-a films have filled the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles seven times.

The Cox Sing-a-Long-a Movies: Grease will present the classic film in glorious Technicolor, complete with subtitles so that the entire audience can sing along. The fun-filled shows will start with a vocal warm-up led by the evening’s host, who also takes the audience through complimentary “Magic Moments Fun Packs,” containing various props to be used at strategic points throughout the film.

The shows also include a costume contest prior to each movie. Everyone who arrives in costume (it’s optional) is invited on the stage to show off their fantastic tailoring skills and vie for prizes. Producers say audiences get quite creative.

Sing-a-Long-a Grease gives everyone the opportunity to relive this classic dressed in the finest leather jacket or poodle skirt and to be a T-bird or a Pink Lady while entering the costume competition. Grease audiences can sport pink wigs or greased quaffs while belting out “You’re The One That I Want” with John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. Audiences also learn the hand-jive.

The Cox Sing-a-Long-a Movies: Grease runs 2 hours and 20 minutes. The showing is suitable for children and is a fun outing for the entire family. For more information on this fun summertime craze, check out the Sing-a-Long-a website or go to OmahaPerformingArts.org
