The 1950s time period will be portrayed accurately with the 12 to 18 year-old cast sporting cuffed denim jeans, leather jackets, and lots of poodle skirts. Scenes will focus at the fictitious Rydel High School, as well as the drive-in movies, senior prom, and other hip locations. The near two-hour production features an original opening number, “I’m very excited about the opening scene and song of the show, and I think it will be a great introduction to what will follow, but I can’t say more without ruining the surprise,” says director Christy Stouffer.
The cast includes: John LaRussa (Danny), Erin Paxton (Sandy), Mariel White (Rizzo), Jessica Straub (Frenchy), along with more than 20 other members. The family-friendly production is a nice change of pace as the holiday season winds down. “I think the scene ‘Greased Lightning’ will be a showstopper, but really they’re all great!” exclaims Stouffer.
