HOME > Grease: You're the One That I Want

Hundreds turn out for New York 'You're the One That I Want' auditions

UPI News Service, 10/28/2006 

Auditions were held this week for the lead roles in a U.S. television show with a prize part in the Broadway revival of "Grease" on the table.

Hundreds of hopeful greasers and good girls jammed the open casting call in New York Friday hoping to land a coveted spot on a new NBC reality show where contestants will vie for the lead roles in the musical.

Up for grabs on "You're the One That I Want" are the parts of Sandy Olsson and Danny Zuko, memorable parts made famous by high-spirited actors Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta in the 1978 movie musical.

Most of the actors, many in period costumes, who began lining up Thursday night at the Palace Theater in Times Square were from New York, although some arrived from as far away as Florida, the Daily News reported.

The casting call was one of three held nationwide for the show, which will air in January. The Broadway play will begin its run in June.
