2016 Mainstage Season


Book, Music and Lyrics by 
Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey

Get out your leather jackets, pull on your bobby socks and take a trip to the fabulous fifties with the original rock ‘n roll high school musical, GREASE! Join the Rydell High School class of 1959 including Danny, Sandy and the rest of the gang as they sing their way through such classic hits as "Summer Nights", "Greased Lightning", "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and more. Brimming with nostalgia, fun, and unforgettable music, come and see why Grease has remained one of the most popular musicals of all time.
