SUMMIT, NJ - Attention all beauty school dropouts who born to hand jive:
The Hilltop City's summer nights are about to get decidedly more slick as The Summit Playhouse will present the classic American musical 'Grease', with performances set for July 26, 27, August 2 and 3 at 7:30 p.m. and matinee performances July 27, 28, August 3 and 4 at 2 p.m.
It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. At the heart of the story is the romance between 'greaser' Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. After a whirlwind summer romance, Danny and Sandy are unexpectedly reunited when she transfers to Rydell High for senior year. But can they survive the trials and tribulations of teenage life, and find love once more?
With hit songs including "Greased Lightning", "We Go Together”, and “Hopelessly Devoted to You”, experience the friendships, romances and adventures of high school pals in the 1950s and see why Grease is still one of the most popular musicals of all time.
The production is directed by Matthew Green with musical direction by Daphne Meng and choreography by Alexa Kerner.
