4. Grease: School Version | Friday – Sunday, July 29-31, Fr-Sa 7:30pm, Su 2pm| Northfield Arts Guild Theater
Among the world’s most popular musicals, Grease romanticizes the 1950s American teenager: duck tails, hot-rods, bobby sox and pedal pushers. This rollicking rock ‘n’ roll musical includes hits like “Summer Nights” and “Greased Lightnin’”. More suitable in content, this version retains the fun-loving spirit and immortal songs that make Grease a favorite among fans of all ages. Bring the entire family!
What did the critics say?
“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 ofGrease carries all before it.” – New York Daily News
Award-winning freelance journalist Joy Riggs, the great-granddaughter of G. Oliver Riggs, will tell the story of this unusual adventure in an engaging presentation at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 30, at the Northfield Historical Society. The event is co-sponsored by the Northfield Historical Society & Vintage Band Festival.
