Grease School Edition
With a hip-shaking rock 'n' roll score featuring hits like "Summer Nights," "Greased Lightnin'," and "We Go Together," Grease celebrates Rydell High's class of 1959 in all their duck-tailed, bobby-soxed, gum-snapping glory. NOTE: Grease: School Version retains the fun-loving spirit and immortal songs of the blockbuster show, but removes any profanity, lewd behavior, and Rizzo's pregnancy scare. The song "There Are Worst Things I Could Do" is also deleted from this edition. Grease: School Version is approximately 15 minutes shorter than the standard version of Grease.
