We regret that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our 2020-21 Cape Symphony season will be rescheduled to 2021-22, because the Barnstable Public School buildings, including the Barnstable Performing Arts Center, will not be available to outside organizations during the 2020-21 school year.
Our musicians, staff, and trustees are all deeply saddened by this situation, as we know you are. We will greatly miss performing for you. Please know that we’re optimistic about the future, and we promise that when we return, the Cape Symphony experience will be better than ever!
“Why, this car is automatic. It’s systematic. It’s hyyyyydromatic. Why, it’s Greased Lightnin’!” And it’s coming to Hyannis with the Cape Symphony! 1978’s summer blockbuster Grease, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, launched some of the most popular songs of all time, including “Summer Nights,” “You're the One That I Want,” “We Go Together,” and more.
“Hopelessly Devoted to You” was nominated for an Oscar, “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee” made a star of Stockard Channing, and Sha-Na-Na starred as the high school dance band, belting out classics like “Hound Dog” and “Born to Hand Jive.”
Forty-plus years after the film’s release, Grease remains one of the most popular movie musicals of all time. The T-Birds and Pink Ladies of our orchestra will perform the unforgettable soundtrack live to the full-length film. Join us and see why “Grease” is still the word!
