Grease By The Cayman Drama Society
Grease is coming to The Prospect Playhouse in Red Bay, Grand Cayman for 3 weekends of performances in June. Tickets to the event are now on sale and are expected to sell out quickly, so grab yours while you can.
Rediscover a classic story set against the hoppin’ backdrop of Rock ‘n’ Roll in the 1950s. Theatergoers will be transported to Rydell High School in 1959, right into the lives of new-girl-in-town Sandy and too-cool-for-school Danny Zuko. A secret summertime romance spins this tale that skips a beat when the pair get back to school in the fall.
Things are different now. Sandy tries to navigate Rydell’s tricky social circles and stay on Danny’s radar. Danny, however, has to maintain his reputation of the school’s tough guy and doesn’t have time for sweet stuff. Leave it to the Pink Ladies though to help their new girlfriend Sandy win back the greaser gang’s leader.
