Paula Ruiz as Sandy rehearses for Chattahoochee High School's production of "Grease." (click for larger version)
February 18, 2014JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The musical theater department at Chattahoochee High School is pleased to present the timeless coming of age classic, "Grease" this March. A cast of more than 40 has been hard at work preparing to wow audiences with hit songs from the 1978 movie that starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton John.
The play, set in the 1950s, weaves the love story of an unlikely couple, bad boy Danny Zuko and good girl Sandy Dumbrowski, who find themselves attending the same high school after having a summer love affair at the beach. The Hooch cast, led by Ian Prost as Danny and Paula Ruiz as Sandy, brings this bubblegum musical to life in a way that will have people dancing in the aisles.
Hits like "Summer Nights," "You're the One that I Want" and "Hopelessly Devoted to You" made the Billboard Top 10 when the cast's parents were in high school.
"We have an exceptional cast performing an amazing script, but we're equally excited about our talented musicians, technicians and set designers. There will definitely be unexpected surprises for our audience," said Director Jennie Blevins. "This show will sell out; it's one of those shows that is great for families, for date night and for empty-nesters who remember the movie. We're just so excited to be able to perform it at Chattahoochee."
The show runs March 6 – 9. Tickets can be reserved in advance or purchased at the door – $12 for students and $15 for adults. For more information and advance ticket purchase, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
