'Grease' ready to hit the stage

April 24-27 at the Laughlin Center for the Performing Arts

Don’t miss this rare opportunity as the RCHS Theatre Department brings back the memories and the music to “Grease” taking the Laughlin Center Stage at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, April 24-26 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 27 for a special closing matinee. Friday’s performance is being billed as the reunion show for the 1982 and 1998 casts.

Grease is being performed by the RCHS Advance Theater students under the direction of Jennie Tague. Tickets are $7 each for reserved seating and on sale now. Tickets may be purchased from any cast member, by e-mailing Jennie Tague at taguej@rushville.k12.in.us, or by calling her at RCHS at 932-3901 ext. 258.

Tague chose to bring back “Grease” to the RCHS stage this year saying, “I felt it was time for a ‘Grease’ revival. It’s been 16 years since it was last staged by RCHS theatre students, and I wanted today’s students to experience this timeless teenage classic. We’re taking cues from the Broadway revival, however, so the musical will have a very fresh feel. Also, we’d like to extend an open invite to past cast members of the original 1982 staging and the 1998 revival staging. We hope past Greasers will join our cast for Friday’s performance and join in our finale number ‘We Go Together!’”

The Grease cast includes female roles: Sandy - McKenzie Conrad, Frenchy - Catie Liggett, Jan - Caysi Johnson, Marty - Lilli Spaeth, Rizzo - Kylee Hickmott, Patty Simcox - Makayla Herbert, Miss Lynch - Hope Noe, Cha-Cha - Jen Latner, Laverne - Jessica Miller, Gina - Lea Noe, Cathy - Emilee Rogers, Carmen - Casey Yager, Tammy - Loretta Kemp, Ginger - Sarah Hershberger, Barb - Brenna Hall, Mimi - Kayla Everhart, Margo - Megan Clifton and male roles: Danny - Zack Cramer, Kenickie - L.J. Conrad, Roger - Austin Tielking, Doody - Nate Hoeing, Sonny - Perry Boles, Eugene - Logan Mahan, Vince - Bryce Conrad, Johnny - Jake Fowler, Teen Angel - Jordan Fritz , Putzie - Tanner Leisure.
