Grease Is the Word & Opens This Sunday, May 19

Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go
Go grease lightning you’re burning up the quarter mile

This 1972 Broadway smash hit is infused with the musical sounds of the 50s that changed the world. GREASE tells a story of teenage love, the shifting roles of women, and the rock and roll revolution. Set in a typical post-World War II 1959 high school, GREASE tells the tale of Danny, leader of the “greaser” pack, and Sandy, stereotypical good girl, who reconnect after a summer romance. Surrounded by Rydell High’s Burger Palace Boys and Pink Ladies, we witness Danny and Sandy attempt to rekindle their romance despite the challenges of 1950s social expectations and peer pressure.

We go together
Like rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong
Remembered forever
As shoo-bop sha wadda wadda yippity boom de boom
Chang chang changitty chang sha-bop
That’s the way it should be
Wah-oooh, yeah!
