Last weekend, the Drama Dogs treated the community to the popular classic musical, “Grease,” which included the participation of about 60 students.
Set in the 1950s, “Grease” tells the story of young lovers, the tough-talking, leather-clad Danny Zuko, played by Nathan Smith, and innocent goodie-goodie Australian exchange student Sandy Dumbrowski, played by Andrea Bailey, who fall in love over summer vacation only to unexpectedly reunite at high school to discover their clashing social cliques are an obstacle to being together. Their journey back to each other is filled with leather jackets, hooped skirts, nifty choreography and catchy tunes.
“It’s one of my favorites,” said Director Lenae Rose. “There are a lot of characters, a live band of mostly students, a fun set– so many areas for students to get involved. It’s also been such a challenging year, and I really wanted to just have fun with this show.”
