The Mountain Play Presents GREASE Starting This Weekend
The Mountain Play, the San Francisco Bay Area's most magical outdoor theater experience is proud to present GREASE for its 106th Season. Directed by Jay Manley, Musical Direction by Mark Dietrich, and Choreography by Nicole Helfer. www.mountainplay.org
This 1972 Broadway smash hit is infused with the musical sounds of the 50s that changed the world. GREASE tells a story of teenage love, the shifting roles of women, and the rock and roll revolution. Set in a typical post-World War II 1959 high school,GREASE tells the tale of Danny, leader of the "greaser" pack, and Sandy, stereotypical good girl, who reconnect after a summer romance. Surrounded by Rydell High's Burger Palace Boys and Pink Ladies, we witness Danny and Sandy attempt to rekindle their romance despite the challenges of 1950s social expectations and peer pressure.
On Saturday, June 8, Mountain Play hosts its second annual sing-along encouraging the audience to join in on such rockin' tunes as: "Summer Nights," "Greased Lightnin'," "Hand Jive," "Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee," and the rollicking "We Go Together." This one-of a kind mountaintop event takes Bay Area theatre-goers to the pinnacle of musical experience.
