The Black Box Theatre at McHenry County College is proud to present as part of its 50th Anniversary celebration, Grease by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey. Here is Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum- snapping, hip-shaking "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'," "Summer Nights," "You’re the One That I Want" recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An eight-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals, along with innumerable school and community productions place Grease among the world's most popular musicals.
Grease is directed by Jay Geller (Kildeer), with musical direction by Michael Hillstrom (Woodstock), choreography by Maggie McCord (Crystal Lake), set design by Thomas Kesling (Glenview), lighting design by Rick Amundsen (Woodstock), costume design by Kathy Brunke (Woodstock) and stage manager Kacie Swanson (Woodstock). The cast includes Monica Hauschild (McHenry), Patrick Wicklow, Mary Beth Brown (Woodstock), Liam Bell, Larisa Bell (Johnsburg), Peri Sindberg (Oakwood Hills), Ben Carver (Island Lake), Ariella Simandl (Wonder Lake), Angelina Straus (Harvard), Nicolas Mule, Ethan Sherman, Julius Alfaro (Huntley), Matthew Lucchetti, Jessica Oliver, Jessica Santos, William Bauer, and Gary Mackowiak (Crystal Lake).
