Jason Donovan said "As a lifelong fan of the show, I'm thrilled to be joining the cast of Grease in the role of Teen Angel at the Dominion Theatre for 6 weeks this year. While I may have missed the boat on playing Danny, the Teen Angel seemed like the perfect fit. I especially look forward to those few performances I get to perform with Peter Andre as Vince Fontaine. Who would have thought two Aussie's would take to the West End in such a well-loved musical, singing the most iconic songs? Roll on June"
