Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre's current show is the one that you want - and the one you'll love to see live! Grease, one of the world's most popular and enduring musicals, has all the fun of the hit film.

Welcome back to 1959 when Sandy Dumbrowski, the new girl in town, and Danny Zuko, the school's coolest greaser, have a secret summertime romance. But when classes start at Rydell High School, everything is different. Sandy attempts to navigate the tricky social waters and catch Danny's attention again, but Danny is chiefly concerned with maintaining his tough-guy reputation. In the end, the Pink Ladies help Sandy figure out how to win him back. Grease features the hit songs "Greased Lightnin'," "You're The One That I Want," and "Summer Nights."

Nominated for seven Tony Awards, Grease debuted on Broadway on Feb. 14, 1972, and went on to be adapted into an Acadamey Award-nominated film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in 1978.

Sarah Daniels and Kaleb Lankford, in the roles of Sandy and Danny, lead the many performers in the cast who are making their Beef & Boards debut in this production. Newcomers joining them Josh McLemore as Doody, Andy Kear as Roger, Nate Willey as Kenickie, Casi Riegle as Rizzo, Adee David as Jan, Kristina Kastrielis as Marty, Nikki Miller as Patty Simcox, and Mariel Blatt as Cha-Cha. Returning to Beef & Boards are Logan Moore as Sonny LaTierri, Jenny Reber as Frenchy, Chris Trombetta as Eugene, Joshua L.K. Patterson as Teen Angel, Jeff Stockberger as Vince Fontaine, and Karen Pappas as Miss Lynch.

Grease is directed by Eddie Curry and choreographed by Ron Morgan.
