Event Details

It’s not the Grease you expect to see; it’s the Grease you need to see.

Bear Grease, by LightningCloud Productions, reimagines the hit 70’s musical, Grease, and takes it on an Indigenous joyride through a parallel universe where colonization never existed.

While staying true to some aspects of the original musical, the show revamps certain elements: Sandy wears a ribbon skirt, it’s the Pink Aunties (not the Pink Ladies), Rizzo is Rezzo, and Summer Lovin’ turns into Summer Snaggin’.

Bear Grease cleverly fuses Doo Wop, Hip-Hop, and Pow Wow styles with Indigenous fashion, history, and humour and makes each show reflective of the community it is performed in.

If laughter is the best medicine, Bear Grease – also the name of a sacred Indigenous medicine – is just what the doctor ordered.
