The cast of Trumpet in the Land will present Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s Broadway musical, "Grease," on Saturday, July 30 at 8:30 p.m.

An eight-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals place "Grease" among the world's most popular musicals.

Rydell High's senior class of 1959 — duck-tailed, hot-rodding Burger Palace Boys and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking Pink Ladies in bobby socks and pedal pushers — evokes the look and sound of the 1950s in this musical.

Head "greaser" Danny Zuko, played by Chester Boffo, and new, good girl Sandy Dumbrowski, played by Ellie Dudeck, try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'," "It's Raining on Prom Night" and "Alone at the Drive-In Movie."

Additional Burger Palace Boys, Pink Ladies and cast members include Bart Herman as Roger, Keon Dalziel as Doody, Ethan Parrish as Sunny, Tristan Peterman as Kenickie, DeeAnne McCoy as Jan, Anna Zurcher as Frenchy, Elle Stokey as Marty, Mac Hardy as Rizzo, Joe Bonamico as Vince Fontaine, Tom Reed as Johnny Casino, Shannon McCullough-McKee as Miss Lynch, Emma Lesiecki as Patty Simcox, Dekin Vanderpool as Eugene, Hayley Smith as Cha-Cha and Zac Rusk as Teen Angel.

"Grease" also will be performed Aug. 6 and 13 at 8:30 p.m. in the Trumpet in the Land Amphitheatre. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors age 60 and over, $18 for students age 13-17, and $10 for children 12 and under and can be reserved by calling the box office at 330-339-1132.
