TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — Students at Sequoyah Schools will soon take a step back in time, to the time of poodle skirts and hot rod cars for a musical rendition of “Grease.” Set in the 1950s, “Grease” showcases the life of a teenager who struggles to fit in at a new school, while meeting the love of her life and having a little adventure along the way.
“This is definitely the biggest production we've tackled so far at Sequoyah,” said Amanda Ray, Sequoyah Schools’ drama teacher. “I think the audience will be surprised by the talent we have this year.”
The “Grease” cast includes White Robertson as “Danny,” Nikia Kemble as “Sandy,” Nathalie Tomasik as “Rizzo,” Nicole Mangels as “Frenchy,” Lakin Keener as “Marty,” Diamond Bailey as “Jan,” Colby Luper as “Kenickie,” Grant Nuegin as “Doody” and Brendan Francis, Austin Lee, Tori Evans, Ciara Christie, Skylar Vann, Garrett Million, Marissa Williams, Daynarrah Crow, Chloe Martinez, Christie Tiger, N’dea Murray, Sara Cheater, and Brettley Crawford in supporting roles.
“The play has quite a few differences from the movie, such as funnier lines and a lot more songs so our students certainly have their work cut out for them,” Ray said. “The cast is full of some of the most dedicated and talented students I've ever had here at Sequoyah, so the rehearsal process has been a great experience for all of us.”
“Grease” will be performed live May 10, 11, and 12 at 7 p.m. at Sequoyah Schools’ The Place Where They Play, 17091 S. Muskogee Ave. Admission is $3 and children under 5 will be admitted free. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
