Theater Department to stage much-loved musical April 22-25

April 7, 2015

Johnson State College’s theater students and faculty will present the musical Grease at 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 22, and 7 p.m. Thursday, April 23, through Saturday, April 25, in the college’s Dibden Center for the Arts.

The production is free and open to the public.

The much-loved musical, which was made into a popular movie in 1978, delves into the lives of working-class teenagers during the early 1950s rock-and-roll era. The musical first opened in Chicago in 1971 but moved to New York and became Broadway’s 15th longest-running show, closing in 1980. There have been two Broadway revivals.
