Do you love her but she doesn’t match up to your image? Is he dreamy but he’s giving you mixed signals? You can be helped. Go on line and buy your tickets to Roxy Regional Theatre’s live production of Grease.
This production, which debuts September 21 as the opening show in the Roxy’s 25th anniversary season, features Matt Nolen of “You’re the One That I Want,” a TV show that gave different actors a chance to compete as Danny and Sandy.
What’s cool? What’s not cool? Relationship answers you’ve always been looking for will knock you upside the head in this live professional performance. What’s that? Tell me more, tell me more, you say. It’s been many years since John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John responded to those lyrics while romping across the grounds and hallowed halls of Rydell High.
As the cast revs up the rehearsal schedule, the behind the scenes action revs up as well — perhaps not as fast as the Greased Lightning car, but fast enough.
No beauty school drop-outs, Randall (left) and David Boen (below, right) are among the many volunteer set builders and back stage crew members who are “totally devoted” to excellent live theater. This father/son team are hard at work readying the set for some good old rock and roll and romance.
Dine, drink and enjoy the Roxy Gala event on Sept. 22nd, when the Roxy doors open and the gala begins. The event includes an auction of local art, with proceeds benefiting the theater. Tickets are $75 each for this grease lighting event. Summer days are driftin away to “uh-oh those summer nights.”
