‘Grease’ is still the word

Par celebrates new DVD edition of classic tuner

Kids young and old squealed for cast members from “Grease” as Paramount Home Video celebrated its special “Rockin’ Rydell” DVD edition of the 1978 musical film.

Didi Conn said she and her fellow thesps “were cast because there’s a kid in all of us that we can’t suppress!”

Joining Conn and members of Sha Na Na, who appeared in the film as dance band Johnny Casino & the Gamblers, to sing “We Go Together” were castmates Jeff Conaway, Lorenzo Lamas, Susan Buckner, Annette Charles and Eddie Deezen, plus helmer Randal Kleiser.

Piggybacking on Santa Monica’s “Drive-In on the Pier” series of summer outdoor unspoolings, the sing-along was a fund-raiser for Arts Against Cancer.
