ENP STAFF REPORTS

Abigail Voss of Barker is working on the Nazareth College Theatre and Dance Department's production of "Grease," to be performed April 15-17 at the Callahan Theater at Nazareth College Arts Center.

A 1971 musical written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, and named after the 1950s American working-class youth dubbed "greasers" (because of the boys' greased-back hairstyles), Grease is set in 1959 at fictional Rydell High School, and follows 10 working-class teenagers as they navigate peer pressure, politics, and love. The duck-tailed, hot-rodding Burger Palace Boys and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking Pink Ladies in bobby sox and pedal pushers evoke the look and sound of a generation. Led by head "greaser" Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski, the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'," "Summer Nights," and more, all recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley.

Grease has been successful on both stage and screen, and by the time it closed in 1980 the show's 3,388-performance run was the longest yet in Broadway history. The stage production has been nominated for three Tony Awards (1972 for Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical, 1994 for Best Revival of a Musical, and 2008 for Best Revival of a Musical), and remains Broadway's 15th longest-running show.

General admission tickets to Grease are $19-$20, and all students receive half-price tickets at the door with valid school ID. For tickets, call - or visit - the Box Office: (585) 389-2170 or order online at artscenter.naz.edu.

The Nazareth College Arts Center Box Office is located on campus, at 4245 East Avenue, Rochester, New York, 14618. Regular box office hours are Monday- Friday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., and for one hour prior to curtain time for Nazareth College Theatre Arts and Dance Department performances.
