IS THE WORD AT CANYON CREST ACADEMY!
Canyon Crest Academy will
present GREASE, The Musical over two
weekends this March in its beautiful proscenium theatre. Set in the Fifties, Grease
tells the timeless love story of Danny Zuko and Sandy Dumbrowski, two kids
from very different cliques. With
such classics as “Summer Nights,” “Look
at Me, I’m Sandra Dee,” “We
Go Together,” and “Beauty School Dropout,” Grease
is filled with nonstop dancing and fun.
And with Grease currently
experiencing yet another revival on Broadway, there is no better time to see it
and join in that fun.

theatre instructor Jeannine Marquie, a successful local actor whose most recent
starring role was in “Rhubarb” with Moxie Theatre.
