Grease: School Version
Friday, February 24, 2023
Presented by Regina High School.
Grease: School Version is a musical about American high schoolers that features music in the rock ‘n roll style of the 1950s. Shorter and more suitable in content for teens and subteens, this abridged version retains the fun-loving spirit and immortal songs that make Grease a favorite among rock and roll fans of all ages. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
Regina presents Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking "Pink Ladies" in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head "greaser" Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'," "It's Raining on Prom Night," "Alone at the Drive-In Movie" recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.
