Grease Synopsis

It's 1959, and Rydell High School's Senior Year is in rare form! The Burger Palace Boys, too cool for school, are stealing hub-caps and getting tough, while the gum-snapping, chain smoking Pink Ladies are looking hot in their Bobby Sox and pedal pushers. At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance in summer, but peer-pressure and cliques make their relationship a bit more complicated when they unexpectedly reunite at school. Can Danny keep maintaining his cool dude status and still make demure Sandy his girl? The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical! (nb)
