Slick back your hair, dig out your leather jacket and jeans and join in the high school celebration of Grease. Come and hear songs that have kept audiences dancing for decades.
While the school version of the musical, “Grease” is tamed down a bit for all audiences, it offers the songs and stories you love and is an activity perfect for the whole family to come out and enjoy.
Act 1 begins in 1959 and Rydell High School’s students are starting a new year (Grease is the Word.) Sandy Dumbrowski, the new girl at school and Danny Zuko, the leader of the ‘Burger Palace Boys’, had a brief romantic fling over the summer. Sandy recounts her version of the fling to the ‘Pink Ladies’ (Jan, Marty, Frenchy, and Betty Rizzo), while Danny tells the Boys (Roger, Doody, Sonny, and Kenickie) his rendition (”Summer Nights”). Sandy and Danny soon bump into each other at school, and while Sandy is happy to see him, he plays it cool. Meanwhile, the kids gather in the hall as Laverne shows off her new guitar, and she gives an impromptu concert in the hall (”Those Magic Changes”).
At Marty’s pajama party, the girls give each other pierced ears, and talk about boys. Marty tells about her long-distance courtship with Freddy (”Freddy, My Love”). Meanwhile, the Burger Palace Boys are busy stealing hubcaps and teasing Kenickie about his new (used) car (”Greased Lightning”).
Danny sees Sandy again and tries to apologize for his behavior. Head cheerleader Patty Simcox interrupts to prompt Sandy to join the squad and to tease Danny about his latest indiscretions (”Rydell Fight Song”). The kids take their newfangled portable radios for a rock and roll picnic in the park and plan how they will pair off at the upcoming school prom, while Roger shares his love for Jan and his favorite hobby (”Mooning”). Rizzo teases Danny for falling for a girl who resembles the excessively proper teenage ingénue, Sandra Dee (”Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee”). Sandy realizes that Danny is putting her off to be cool and wishes she had never met him (Hopelessly Devoted).
