Grease, everyone's favorite rock and roll musical opens at the Greenhouse Theatre on Friday, June 13th at
8:00 PM. Kids 8-16 from as far away as Dallas have joined Wimberley's youth in the third musical theatre camp produced and directed by Lee Colee' Studios and presented by The Wimberley Players.
Grease, the moveie, starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton John and is now a film classic. The original stage version is similar in plot but contains musical numbers quite different from the movie version and characters that had only minor importance on film are major personalities on stage. Since June 2nd, the kids have been rehearsing and studying the art of musical theatre technique and learning how to bring the beloved T-Birds and Pink Ladies such as Danny, Sandy, Kenickie and Rizzo to life.
Cast members include Wimberley's own Sydni Kipp as Sandy, Austen Cabler as Danny and Dylan Meek as Kenickie. Lauren Stewart from Dallas plays Rizzo. The rest of the cast are Tess Allen, Melissa Birchett, Bobbie Bloom, Brandun Bohrer, Isabel and Olivia Burnette, Conleigh Byers, Calen Cabler, Cara Carpenter, Jacob Christian, Sharla Curtis, Brittney English, Andy Garcia, Jessica Godwin, Laurel Hostak, Tomi Hutton, Bee Ling Lim, Jessica McClusky, Alanna Meck, Kevin Pierce, Liza Ponder, Anna Roenigk, Julie Rossman, Ashlynn Rutherford, Rachel Sadler, Kimy Suarez and Dan William.
Staff members and crew are Ginger Pierce, Angie Fagan and Kathryn Suarez. Lee Colee'-Atnip will again direct, choreograph and produce.
Local businesses awarding scholarships and providing other assistance are The Lions Club of Wimberley, Prow'd House Bed and Breakfast, Professional Graffiti, Ace Hardware and Steve Robinson.
