Hip Hop duo LightningCloud – Crystle Lightning (Canadian Screen Award winner for Best Actress 2021) and MC RedCloud (former Guinness World Record holder for longest freestyle rap) are the creators, writers and directors of this Treaty 6 Indigenous re-mastered twist on the classic musical. It combines hip-hop, parody, improv and freestyle to offer a new historical perspective. “Representation matters,” explains RedCloud. “Grease is a classic, but during the ‘50s and ‘60s, we weren’t able to run around the streets like Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta. We were getting shuffled into some nonsense and boarding school.” Come with your singing voice ready to rock and roll for this hilarious evening of indigenized musical theatre that was the first show to completely sell out at this year’s Edmonton Fringe Festival.
