St. John Theatre has provided St. John and the surrounding parishes with live theatre experiences since 1981. This year will be no exception as we are thrilled to present GREASE as our summer musical production. We invite you to join our St. John Theatre “Family”, as we enroll in Rydell High School and Rock and Roll all summer long.
Here is Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking "Pink Ladies" in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head "greaser" Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'," "It's Raining on Prom Night," "Alone at the Drive-In Movie" recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An eight-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals, along with innumerable school and community productions place Grease among the world's most popular musicals.
AGES: We invite anyone age 13 & up to audition.
REHEARSALS: Rehearsals will begin in the first week of May. A rehearsal schedule will be sent out each week, letting each cast member know when they are expected to be at rehearsals that week. Rehearsals typically start at 7pm and go until 10 pm (but could possibly start earlier as needed.
