is a certified Broadway classic that is ingrained in American culture, and for good reason! Grease follows a group of working-class teenagers in 1959 at the fictional Rydell High School in Chicago, Illinois. Greaser, Danny Zuko, and new-in-town good girl, Sandy Dumbrowksi, attempt to rekindle their romance from the summer before senior year, while the rest of their friends navigate the struggles and complexities of high school, such as peer pressure, politics, love, and their own identities. Featuring music, lyrics, and book by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, Grease features unforgettable songs such as “Summer Nights,” “We Go Together,” and “You’re the One that I Want.” By the time Grease concluded its original Broadway run from 1972 to 1980, it held the record for the longest run in Broadway history before being surpassed by A Chorus Line in 1983. Grease also spawned its classic 1978 film adaptation starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Due to the numerous revivals and changes that have been made to the musical since its inception, several versions of the show exist with different song placement and plot points, yet the core coming-of-age story remains the same.

The story begins at the Rydell High School Class of 1959’s reunion (“Alma Mater”), where old spinster English teacher, Miss Lynch, introduces Patty Simcox, former cheerleader and yearbook editor, and Eugene Florczyk, class valedictorian and resident poindexter. Eugene delivers a stirring speech acknowledging that any alumni missing from the gathering are surely there in spirit. Eugene’s speech leads the scene to transition focus on the T-Birds greaser gang (known as the Burger Palace Boys in earlier versions) and their companion female gang, the “Pink Ladies,” as they parody the Rydell alma in crude fashion (“Alma Mater (Parody)”). The action then flashes back to the first day of high school in fall of 1958. The Pink Ladies congregate in the cafeteria while the T-Birds hang out by the school’s main entrance. Frenchy, a member of the Pink Ladies, introduces to the girls her new neighbor, Catholic school reject, Sandy Dumbrowski. Sandy reveals to the other Pink Ladies, Marty, Jan and Rizzo, along with Patty, how she had a brief love affair over the summer that ended sadly unresolved. Mirroring the girls, womanizing greaser Danny Zuko brags to T-Bird boys, Kenickie, Roger, Doody and Sonny, about the details of his own Summer fling (“Summer Nights”), Sandy’s version of the events emphasizes the romantic aspects of her relationship, whereas Danny’s focuses on the more risque elements.
From the very start of your production, The Costumer will immediately transport your audience to the world of Rydell High School with the help of our fabulous rental costumes! The Costumer’s wide array of authentic 1950’s style rental costumes for productions of Grease will capture all of the charm and period aesthetics of a Chicago high school in the late fifties. Sandy will take the stage in a fashionable blouse, cinch belt, circle skirt with crinoline, and a bow in her hair. Danny will strut onto the scene looking like a quintessential greaser in black pants, a black t-shirt, and his classic leather jacket. Danny will be flanked by his fellow T-Birds in matching leather jackets, creating the image of the classic leather-clad greaser gang. The Pink Ladies will appear in a variety of straight skirts and stylish sweaters, with their iconic Pink Lady jackets draped over themselves. Supporting characters will also capture the 1950’s aesthetic through their attire, such as Miss Lynch appearing as a frumpy old spinster in an outdated print dress, or Eugene resembling a traditional poindexter in a buttoned-up 50’s style suit and tie. After Sandy and Danny both sing about their summer romance, the Pink Ladies soon realize that Sandy’s summer love is the very same Danny Zuko that attends their high school. The girls arrange for the two estranged loves to bump into each other at school, resulting in a less than romantic, tense and awkward meeting. Danny had led Sandy to believe that he attended a private academy and is hesitant to admit to the T-Bird boys that Sandy was the girl that he had been talking about. Danny and the T-Birds depart, leaving Sandy heartbroken. The Pink Ladies do their best to cheer up the new girl and invite her over to Marty’s pajama party. Not long afterwards, the Rydell High students gather in the hall to watch Doody as he shows off his new guitar and performs “Those Magic Changes” for the teenagers.
Later on at Marty’s pajama party, the Pink Lady girls experiment with drinking wine, smoking cigarettes, and piericing their ears, talking about boys all the while. The innocent and sheltered Sandy is left aghast by the sight of blood from the girls piercing their ears, leading the other girls to mock her when Sandy leaves the room (“Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee). Marty then tells the girls about her long-distance relationship with a young marine named Freddy, which Marty implies that she only maintains due to the exotic gifts Freddy sends her from Japan (“Freddy, My Love”). While the girls enjoy their pajama party, the T-Birds steal hubcaps, unaware that they are in fact stealing the caps from Kenickie’s prized car, Greased Lightnin’. Although the boys cast doubt on Kenickie’s affirmations, Kenickie declares that once he gets the upgrades he needs, Greased Lightnin’ will not only capture checkered flags at races, but also the attention of the girls. 
While this is only the beginning of the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies’ musical tale, The Costumer will continue to provide your ensemble with quality rental costumes for each and every character! From greaser and Pink Lady jackets, to cheerleader uniforms, tracksuits, pajamas and “Beauty School Dropout” hair roller headpieces, The Costumer has got you covered!
