"Grease" is the all-American musical based on the sub-cultures of high school life in the 1950’s. Sweet Sandy Dumbrowski and Danny Zuko meet over the summer where true love starts to blossom. When Sandy transfers to Rydell High, she runs into Danny, the leader of the tough-talking but harmless gang of greasers, the ‘T-Birds’. Danny ignores Sandy during their first encounter, pretending to be too cool to be seen with sweet Sandy. The ‘Pink Ladies’ soon take Sandy under their wing at a pajama party where Sandy and the ‘Pink Ladies’ experiment with cigarettes, wine and ear piercing.
As Danny and Sandy continue down the road to reconciliation, there are car rumbles, a dance contest and the infamous drive-in movie scene. When Danny refuses to conform to Sandy’s wholesome good girl image, Sandy dons tight jeans, changes to a bouffant hairdo and is determined to win back her one true love. Filled with foot-stomping tunes such as “We Go Together,” “Greased Lightning,” “Summer Nights” and “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee,” this production is sure to delight all audiences.
Debbie Wilson, El Dorado Musical Theatre's founder, directs and choreographs the cast of performers between the ages of thirteen and nineteen, including Clara Regula as Sandy Dumbrowski, Spencer Borup as Danny Zuko, Jordan Sharp as Rizzo and Terry Hicks as Kenicke.
