Candlewick and Prairie Spirit School Division

Present:

GREASE

School Version

Book, Music and Lyrics by JIM JACOBS and WARREN CASEY
Additional Movie Music by ROBERT STIGWOOD

"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."

With a reputation of being one of the most well-loved musicals of our generation, Prairie Spirit School Division and Candlewick are excited to present it in their ongoing list of spring musicals. With a cast and crew of well over 60 people, the production boasts a cast and crew of students from across southern Manitoba and a fantastic leadership team of adult volunteers.
