The first promo for the upcoming Grease Live stage production has just been released by Fox and it looks like the new take won’t be veering too far from the iconic musical’s original 1950’s style.

The video features Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens and Carly Rae Jepsen, among others, decked out in spot-on costumes and getting down to the hand-jive, a classic 1950’s-era dance move.

Hough plays Sandy, the role made famous by Olivia Newton-John in the 1971 movie, and will act opposite Gossip Girl star, Aaron Tveit playing Danny Zuko, the role that made John Travolta a star.

Carly Rae Jepsen absolutely nails her Frenchie look, while Hudgens vamps it up as Pink Ladies leader Rizzo.

Also to be featured in the one-off live stage production are Keke Palmer, Mario Lopez and Nick Jonas.

Grease Live will air Jan. 31, 2016.
