by Joanne Engelhardt

Remember those good old days of rock 'n roll when girls wore their hair in ponytails and sported poodle skirts? Remember "the Fonz" and his cool leather jacket? Now's the time to grab your favorite Pink Lady and travel back to when beehives were in and greasy hair gel was cool!

Grease, the popular musical by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, made its off-Broadway debut in 1972 and has since grown in to American phenomenon. Director Steve Shearer and his cast of energetic singers and dancers breathe new life into one of Broadway's longest-running musicals for Stage 1 Community Theatre's next production.

Grease parodies the happy days of the students at Rydell High School and provides a glimpse into what life was like growing up in the super-cool '50's for the funniest gang of teenagers you'll ever meet.

The play, held at Newark Memorial High School Theatre, 39375 Cedar Boulevard, Newark, opens Friday night, September 10th, at 8 p.m., and continues through September 25th with performances on Friday and Saturday evenings. There will also be two 2:30 p.m. matinees on Sunday, September, 12th and 19th.

Tickets for the production are $10-18. For tickets or information, call (510) 791-0287
