National Youth Arts - ArtsDig - Resource for youth arts


Teenagers bedecked in poodle skirts, blue jeans and leather jackets. Phrases like ’Hey, Daddy-O,’ and ‘Word from the Bird’ are tossed back and forth in casual repartee. These are the students of Rydell High, perfectly portrayed by the students of Tri-School Theatre. Grease, set in 1959, follows a motley crew of teenagers as they fall in and out of love. It centers around the straight-laced Sandy Dumbrowski and the smooth Danny Zuko as they struggle with their inherent identities and values, attempting to transcend conventional social boundaries and cultivate a relationship. 

The musical, with a 1950s rock-and-roll score, also explores issues such as teenage pregnancy and adolescent rebellion. 

This show came together masterfully under the extraordinary leadership of Executive Director Hillary Pearson. This show continues the Tri-School legacy of excellence and professionalism, and it was very evident as the show unfolded that these talented cast members were performing with commitment and solidarity to making this their finest show to date. And, even though I’ve seen this production on film numerous times as well as on stage, I thoroughly enjoyed every second.

Performed April 30 - May 3, 2015
