Like a lot of things you loved as a kid, Grease is full of stuff that would never fly today. For instance: Guys, if your friends say, “Tell me more, tell me more/Did she put up a fight?” when you’re describing a date, you need new friends. But it’s a sure bet that even just reading those lyrics has the song ping-ponging through your brain. Once heard, tunes like “Summer Nights,” “We Go Together” and the utterly irresistible, Abba-reminiscent “You’re the One That I Want” are indelibly implanted in your head, which is why sing-alongs like this one at the Abbey are so successful – no one won’t know the words. You may need some practice to recall the “hand jive,” though, which is where your party hosts and the props in your swag bag come into play. Go, Greased Lightning.

Friday, 8 p.m. | The Abbey, 100 S. Eola Drive | 407-704-6261 | abbeyorlando.com | $15-$25
