Everyone’s favorite musical is making its way to the Alfred State stage this semester. Set in 1958, Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s masterpiece, Grease, follows the story of a group of teenagers—the “Burger Palace Boys” and their female counterparts, the “Pink Ladies”—as they deal with the complexities of high school romance and coming of age. Performing canon favorites like “We Go Together,” “Greased Lightning,” and “Summer Nights,” the Grease cast and musicians will have the crowd popping out of their seats to show off their best hand jive.
Directed by Janna Buckwalter with music direction by Eric Prentice and pit direction by Jerry Ives, Grease is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC. Alfred State’s production stars Tyler Ribble as Danny Zuko, Michaela Olin as Sandy Dumbrowski, Hannah Leffler as Betty Rizzo, Andrea Szwejbka as Frenchy, Brittany Richards as Marty, Kelly Beachner as Jan, Jerrod Comer as Doody, and Kris Majka as Kenickie.
The Alfred State Drama Club will be performing this hit November 21-23 at 7 p.m. and November 24 at 2 p.m. in the Cappadonia Auditorium in the Orvis Activities Center. Tickets are $7 for general admission and $2 for students, and will be available at the door or can be reserved in advance by calling 607-587-4079. Get yours before they sell out!
