Car plunges into orchastra pit during Grease musical injuring 2

Whoa, Greased Lighting!

Dutch theatergoers were shocked Sunday night when a would-be John Travolta and his Olivia Newton-John lookalike counterpart were injured as their car plunged into the orchestra pit during a performance of the musical "Grease."

Jim Bakkum got a concussion and Bettina Holwerda may have broken her arm, the director of the Almere City Theater Peter Swinkels told Dutch television.

"Jim was driving. ... She (Bettina) was able to to jump off before it went over the edge, and Jim went down with the car," Swinkels told RTL Nieuws. The car landed in an empty part of the pit, and no musicians were injured.

Both immediately were taken to the hospital for treatment in the town of Almere, 15 kilometers (9 miles) east of Amsterdam.

The car, dubbed "Greased Lighting" during a song in the play, was made up of the chassis of a classic red-and-white convertible and the engine of a golf cart.

The incident took place during a scene where the characters made famous by Travolta and Newton-John in the movie version Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson go to a drive-in movie in the car, reports AP.

Bakkum, 19, was the runner-up in the first version of the "Idols" talent search program in the Netherlands.
