The Wildcat Players of Woodmont High will present Grease April 19-29. Show times will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. Admission will $7 at the door.

The popular musical presentation is about 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.

An eight year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with innumerable school and community productions make Grease among the world’s most popular musicals.

“A lively and funny musical-as well as the dancingest one in town. It’s a winner…the songs are dandies [that portray] the early rockers with zip and charm. The sheer energy of Grease carries all before it.”-New York Daily News
