Aussie school cancels its production of 'Grease' after students say it's too offensive

Must See

Two schools in Australia have pulled the plug on their upcoming production of Grease after students complained about the musical being offensive and sexist.

Students at Presbyterian Ladies' College in Perth said the musical contained "offensive, sexist and anti-feminist" tropes and it isn't fit to be shown in modern-day Australia.

As a result, the planned co-production between the school and its sister school has been cancelled.

Perth Now reports that the parents said cancelling the show was a mistake and suggested the content could have been rewritten to suit modern audiences, with several Perth schools having put on the musical in recent years with no concerns reported.

The classic musical starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John was released 1978 and follows the story of two 1950s teens, Danny and Sandy, who are reunited as high school seniors after a summer fling and attempting to rekindle their romance despite being from vastly different groups at school.
