From the pop world to treading the boards…The Wanted’s Tom Parker is set to embark on his first ever theatrical role as heart throb Danny Zuko in Grease.
The original West End production of the iconic musical Grease heads out on tour next year, opening at the Palace Theatre Manchester on Friday 10 March 2017.
The original high-school musical features everyone’s favourite characters- Sandy, Danny, the T Birds, Pink Ladies and the whole gang at Rydell High – plus all the unforgettable songs from the hit movie including You’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word and Summer Nights.
Pop star Tom joins the cast of Grease after amassing worldwide success with his band The Wanted, achieving three platinum albums, two sold out arena tours, and 3 million singles sold in America. After The Wanted split in 2014, 28 year old Tom continued his music and more recently reached the final of Channel 4’s The Jump. Grease will be the word for Tom as he starts rehearsals for the 2017 UK tour of the musical with further casting to be announced soon.
