HILTON College’s drama and music departments, together with Epworth High School, present Grease the Musical at the Hilton College Theatre at 2 pm on Sunday, April 24, and 7 pm on Monday, April 25, Wednesday, April 27 and Thursday, April 28.
It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in top form. The high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be ‘too cool for school’, grown up and rebellious!
At the heart of the story is the romance between Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance in summer, but now back in the context of school, peer-pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still get make demure Sandy his girl?
The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, through such hit songs as Greased Lightnin and We Go Together, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.
Grease is among the world’s most popular musicals and has a cult-like following of all ages. So put on your Blue Suede Shoes and glad rags and book now to see the school musical of the year!
