“Tell me more, tell me more!” Jepsen, 29, tweeted on Wednesday, Sept. 30. “I’ll be joining the cast of #GreaseLive as Frenchy!” 

The Canadian native is, of course, used to singing live. But besides headlining her own shows, Jepsen played Cinderella in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Broadway classic last year.

Another actress that recently starred on Broadway is Vanessa Hudgens — who is set to play Pink Ladies ringleader Rizzo. “Being Rizzo is something I’ve never imagined, and I love that because it will be a new challenge,” the Gigi star said in a statement this past January. “She is such an iconic character that continues to transcend generations. I cannot wait to bring her to life on live television.”
