John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John dress as Danny, Sandy for first time since ‘Grease’

For the first time since the iconic musical “Grease” hit theaters in 1978, the movie’s stars, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, donned familiar costumes for a meet and greet in Florida.

Travolta, who played greaser Danny Zuko, and Newton-John, who portrayed transfer student Sandy Olsson, reunited Friday in West Palm Beach for "Meet n Grease Movie Sing-a-long with Danny and Sandy," according to WPTV.

The actors wore costumes to create their character's well-known looks for the event. Newton-John, 71, shared a photo of the pair on Instagram Friday. She wore a yellow cardigan and skirt while Travolta, 65, wore a leather jacket over a black shirt and pants.

"First time in costume since we made the movie!" Newton-John wrote in a caption for the photo. "So excited!!"

Hundreds of people gathered Friday for the event. Newtown-John sang "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and Travolta sang "Sandy," according to TMZ. Travolta shared several behind-the-scenes images from the event on Instagram.

"#Grease is still the word," he wrote.

Last month, Newton-John auctioned the leather jacket she wore in "Grease" to raise money for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Center. The jacket was sold to a buyer, who asked to remain anonymous, for $242,200, but BBC News reported the buyer declined to keep the jacket in favor of returning it to the actress.

"It should not sit in a billionaire's closet for country-club bragging rights," the buyer said, according to BBC News.

Newton-John and Travolta are scheduled to make appearances Friday and Saturday at a pair of "Meet n Grease" events in Tampa and Jacksonville, according to People.
