“The musical series takes place in 1954: four years before the original “Grease”, four years before rock ‘n’ roll ruled and four yeas before the T-Birds were the coolest in the school. A group of fed-up outcasts, played by Marisa Davila, Cheyenne Isabel Wells, Ari Notartomaso and Tricia Fukuhara, dare to have fun on their own terms, sparking a moral panic that will change Rydell High forever.”
Creator of the show Annabel Oakes was initially hesitant to make a prequel of Grease until she found herself asking questions about the film that she never found answers for. This led her to focus on re-imagining the Pink Ladies.
The Ladies walk with their heads held high in school. They go on adventures in and out, never without a face of confidence.
