Olivia-Newton John and Didi Conn brought "Summer Nights" to a Las Vegas stage in the middle of winter with a little "Grease" reunion.

The two actresses, who played Sandy and Frenchy respectively in the 1978 smash hit, performed the song Saturday night at the Flamingo Hotel & Casino. Conn sported a pink jacket, similar to what she wore in the film, while Newton-John wore a black leather jacket.

Conn's appearance came as part of Newton-John's regular stage show, "Summer Nights," which features an eight-piece band. She began a 45-performance run in early April. The 66-year-old singer typically incorporates several songs from Grease, including "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and "You're The One That I Want."

John Travolta, who starred alongside Newton-John in the film, appeared onstage with her earlier in 2014 to sing together.

"Grease" starred Newton-John as a high school girl who falls in love with tough guy Danny Zuko, played by Travolta. Frenchy is Sandy's cousin, and a member of the Pink Ladies "gang," which routinely hung out with Danny's "T-Birds." The film was an adaptation of the hit Broadway show.

Conn, 63, has also made appearances in TV shows such as "The Fonz" and the "Happy Days Gang," "Shining Time Station," and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." She also reprised her role of Frenchy in 1982's "Grease 2."
