Spring 2021

Join PAA’s 7th – 12th grade students for a performance of Grease!

Sandy Dumbrowski, the new girl in town, and Danny Zuko, the school’s coolest greaser, have a secret summertime romance – but when they get back to school, everything is different. Sandy attempts to navigate the tricky Rydell High School social waters and catch Danny’s attention again, but Danny is chiefly concerned with maintaining his tough-guy reputation. In the end, the Pink Ladies help Sandy figure out how to win back the leader of the Burger Palace Boys.

GREASE: SCHOOL VERSION
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey
