Celebs, they’re just like us! Not wanting to miss out on all of the Broadway musical fun, the cast of FOX’s upcoming GREASE: LIVE! TV musical took a break from their non-stop rehearsing on Dec. 3 to host a viewing party of NBC’s The Wiz. Vanessa Hudgens, Julianne Hough, Carlos PenaVega and the rest of the Rydell High gang gathered for the live event and much to our delight, documented the whole thing on social media.

Carlos appeared to be having a blast with his fellow Grease: Live cast mates when the group got together to watch The Wiz on NBC. Taking to Instagram, the actor and singer, who plays Kenickie in the upcoming FOX production, posted a number of super cute group shots from inside their special bonding session, which took place after yet another full day or rehearsals. “Really starting to love my new familia !! @aarontveit@juleshough @vanessahudgens @kekepalmer @jordan_fisher #musicaltheatregeeks #greaselive DAY 4 complete! Now off to watch #thewhizlive #NBC with these crazy people!!” he wrote alongside a group shot of the cast.
Watch Vanessa Hudgens & More Do Hand Jive In First ‘GREASE: Live’ Promo
Though the cast has only just begun rehearsing, they did give fans a sneak peek at what they can expect come the show’s premiere on Jan. 26 with the release of their first promo video. In the video, the full cast, including Carly Rae Jepsen, Keke Palmer, and Aaron Tveit, makes an appearance, showing off their awesome “Hand Jive” skills.
According to a FOX press release, the live show will “reintroduce and reimagine some of the show’s most memorable moments, great music and timeless love story to an entirely new generation.” We’re hopelessly devoted to Danny and Sandy’s epic romance and can’t wait to see how Julianne, Carlos, Vanessa and the rest of the cast, reimagine this classic come the new year!
