#LSN_Arts Badanai Theatre presents GREASED
THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO August 14, 2017 (LSN) Greased takes us back to 1959 and it’s back to school for Danielle Zippo (Carly Martin), the leader of the T-Birdies the "mean girls" of Rydell High, and new “good boy” Sandy Olsen (Hudson Drew Morash) who try to relive the high romance of their “summer nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances it way through popular 50’s tunes such as “Yakety-Yak”, “Leader of the Pack”, “Book of Love”, “Mama Said”, “The Twist”, and many more. The cast is rounded out with Buddy Rizzo (Micheal Bogensberger) a shy, rather awkward young geek who befriends Sandy, Penelope (Katherine Nemec) as Danielle’s best friend and a great mechanic and fighter of boys, Sunny (Olivia McInnis) who enjoys putting other people on by pretending she is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and Mr. Jack Hass (Spencer Hari) an algebra teacher, Chess club coach and Glee club adviser. This actors cast in these roles will surely deliver a full throttle of laughs in this production of Greased.
“It’s something that we’ve often thought about producing here (Thunder Bay), but the timing was not yet right to start to do them” said Lawrence Badanai. “We thought shows such as these would be perfect for Thunder Bay theatre audiences that love popular music and comedy!” added co-director Candi Badanai. Randy Apostle’s scripts are comedic musical shows that have a unique parody spin to them – often based on popular movies or television shows. “We’re kicking off our first production here with GREASED” said Lawrence “and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we have onstage this time!”
Greased plays August 15-17, 22-24, 2017 on the Paramount Theatre stage at 7:30 pm nightly. Tickets are for sale at Maple Tops and at the door for only $15. For more information: www.badanaitheatre.com
