You loved the movie and know the songs; now see the entire gang onstage at Red Bank Catholic’s production of “Grease!” With energetic dance and song, RBC Casey Players will bring to life some of theatre’s most memorable characters, from the drag-racing “Greasers” and gum-cracking “Pink Ladies” to cheerleaders, athletes, and the rest of Rydell High’s Class of ’59. The story focuses on America’s original favorite teen couple, greaser “hottie” Danny Zuko (played by Henry Raber) and the wholesome “good girl” Sandy Olson (played by Kate Mazza). When their worlds collide, the high-octane rock ’n roll party begins!
With plenty of leather jackets, poodle skirts, and wisecracks, this classic fun-filled musical tells the timeless story of teenage angst and the dream of young love. Join the Class of ’59 as they sing and dance their way through their last year of high school and realize that despite their differences, they will “always be together…”
The talented cast features Olivia Cancellieri (Frenchy), Kaitlin Leddy (Marty), Olivia Rauso (Rizzo), Casey Regan (Patty), Christina Vitale (Cha-Cha), Katie Wilson (Jan), Aidan Byrnes (Vince Fontaine), Christopher Joseph Mallamaci (Sonny), Sean Pealli (Eugene), Tim de Domenico (Doody and Teen Angel), Molly Fichter (Miss Lynch), John Gnazzo (Johnny Casino), Jamie Shippee (Kenickie), and Alex Spiezio (Roger).
