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 email@example.com, 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!’”
