“There are a couple things that are different from the movie since this is the musical version. There are some added songs... but it's still the same story," explained Elise Hintzman, who plays Sandra Dee.

Elise and Zach Palmer, who plays Danny, stopped by GMN Friday ahead of opening night. They are both juniors at Superior High School and have always enjoyed the music from the movie 'Grease.'

“It's a super iconic show so there's a lot of pressure that we get it right," said Elise. "But I think it's really been more fun than that much work."

Forty-one students are involved in the production, plus many volunteers and helpers behind the scenes.

“It was kind of an undertaking. It was cool to see everything work out," Zach said. "Finally getting the set up, the car was built by our friend and helper with the show, Ed Johnson. Coming together, it's like 'wow, that was fast.'”

'Grease' opens Friday, May 12, at 7:00 p.m. at the Superior High School Performing Arts Center. Folks will have two chances to check out the production on Saturday, May 13, at 2:00 or 7:00 p.m. The performance on Sunday, May 14, is at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students.

Due to construction around the school, the director recommends people arrive early to park and get seated.
