The "Mysterious Girl" hitmaker Peter Andre will play Vince Fontaine in Grease. Grease marks Andre's West End debut, but he has previously guest starred in Thriller Live at the Lyric Theatre.
"I'm beyond excited to be making my West End debut playing Vince Fontaine in Grease at the beautiful Dominion Theatre", said Andre. "Grease is such an iconic musical and we can guarantee audiences will have the most wonderful evening listening to songs we all know and love. We can't wait to see you there!"

The Pink Ladies are completed by Jocasta Almgill as Rizzo, Eloise Davies as Frenchie, Lizzy-Rose Esin-Kelly as Marty, and Mary Moore as Jan. The Burger Palace Boys include Paul French as Kenickie, Jake Reynolds as Doody, and Damon Gould as Sonny.
Jessica Croll plays Patty Simcox, alongside Katie Lee as Cha Cha, Ronan Burns as Johnny Casino, and Corinna Powlesland as Miss Lynch. Darren Bennett will play Officer Mailie and Vince Fontaine at certain performances. The Grease ensemble will feature Jack Harrison-Cooper, Pearce Barron, Rishard-Kyro Nelson, Ellie Kingdon, Remi Ferdinand, Kalisha Johnson, Imogen Bailey, Kevin O'Dwyer and Carly Miles, with further casting to be announced.
Grease follows Danny and Sandy, high school sweethearts who are reunited at Rydell High for their senior year. The Grease musical features songs such as "Hopelessly Devoted to You," "Greased Lightnin'", and "Summer Nights."
The Grease creative team includes direction by Nikolai Foster, choreography by Arlene Phillips, scenic design by Colin Richmond, lighting design by Ben Cracknell and sound design by Tom Marshall and Richard Brooker.
