Let’s Learn About “Grease”

If you’re unfamiliar with the plot of “Grease,” don’t worry. We’re here to help. First of all, you should know that the story takes place the senior year of 1959. Located at Rydell High, you’ll find that the men and women are mostly divided into the “Burger Palace Boys” and the “Pink Ladies.” The music is straight out of the 1950’s and allows you to snap your fingers and stomp your feet. The story follows good girl Sandy as she tries to relive the summer romance with bad boy Danny Zuko. But as the school year begins, problems ensue and their friends get in the way. As each group sings famous songs such as “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin’,” and “It’s Raining on Prom Night,” you’ll have flashbacks to the memorable scenes from the original movie. Don’t miss out on this fun experience!
