The Modesto Junior College Theatre, Dance and Music Departments will present Grease on March 15, 16, 21, 22, and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and March 24 at 2 p.m. in the Main Auditorium of the Media and Performing Arts Center on College Avenue in Modesto. There will be a preview night March 14 at 7:30 p.m.
Teenage love, friendship, rebellion, and pastimes make up the plot for Grease. The characters go through their senior year at Rydell High trying to fit in, have fun and support each other through good times and no-so-good times. Ultimately, the kids learn that they need each other – because one thing that does last is friendship.
Famous songs from the production include “Summer Lovin,” “Greased Lightning,” “We Go Together,” “You’re the One That I Want,” “Sandy” and “Hopelessly Devoted to You.” Featured will be more than 40 cast members and a rock band.
