University School of Jackson


USJ Upper and Middle School to Put on Grease

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.

You don't want to miss this incredible production, which will be February 28 and 29 at 7 p.m. and March 1 at 2 p.m.  Tickets go on sale February 1.  Just click the link below to purchase your tickets in advance or you can purchase them at the door the day of the show.  Doors to the Blankenship Theater will open 30 minutes prior to showtime.  This show will have you dancing and singing along, but we do want to remind you that it is rated PG-13 due to content, which entails teen pregnancy, smoking and lewd comments.
