"I love everything about a live show and the adrenaline that you get from doing something live," Hough says in the behind-the-scenes clip. "Then on top of that it's Grease and it's such an iconic show. I think this feels like a dream for most of us."
Executive producer Marc Platt couldn't be happier with the casting.
"Our Sandy is going to be alive and vibrant," Platt says. "When Julianne Hough walked in it was like, 'Oh my God! There she is!'"
Hudgens had a similar experience when she suited up to portray the iconic bad girl.
"Our intention is to take the best of the film, draw a little bit upon the stage production and emerge with our own refreshed, true Grease," Platt says. "The feel of our production is going to be alive. It's going to be contemporary even though it will be true to the '50s."
