The cast features 24 performers between the age of 15 and 19 from Bordentown, Fieldsboro, Pennington and Robbinsville.
2014 marks the seventh year of the successful Bordentown Junior Theatre Company summer program, which has given hundreds of young actors the opportunity to perform musicals such as Beauty and the Beast Jr. and The Little Mermaid Jr. This is Bordentown Theatre’s second production featuring area teen performers, and follows last summer’s production of Rent.
Grease tells the story of Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding Burger Palace Boys and their gum-snapping, hipshaking Pink Ladies in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical.
Head greaser Danny Zuko and new good girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their Summer Nights as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as Greased Lightnin', It's Raining on Prom Night, Alone at the Drive-In Movie, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.
Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. August 1 and August 2 at the Bordentown Performing Arts Center, 318 Ward Ave., Bordentown.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for seniors and children.
