FOOTLITE MUSICALS announces open auditions for GREASE, the Young Adult Production, for the 2022-2023 season.

About the musical, GREASE
A musical about teens in love in the 1950’s. It’s California 1958, and greaser Danny Zuko and good girl Sandy are in love. They spend time at the beach and when they go back to school, what neither of them know is that they both now attend Rydell High. Danny’s the leader of the T-Birds, a group of black leather jacket wearing greasers, while Sandy hangs with the Pink Ladies, a group of pink-wearing girls led by Rizzo. When they clash at Rydell’s first pep rally, Danny isn’t the same Danny from the beach. They try to be like each other so they can be together.
