Desert Star Playhouse, the theater that’s built a reputation for producing laugh-out-loud, family-friendly musical comedies, continues its 2015 season with a sock hoppin’ flashback to the 1950’s in “Grease’d - Happy Days are Here Again!”
Excited to start their senior year at Saltair High School, the Sharks dream of repeating their state championship victory in water skiing at the Great Salt Lake over their bitter rivals, the Antelope Island High School Jets. With the help of Saltair High School’s own hero, Manny Zeko, victory is almost assured. When the mysterious and charismatic new student Charles “Ponzi” Ponzerelli shows up, can Manny with his fellow Sharks, Canucky and Putzi, and accompanied by the lovely leader of the Pink Lemons, Frizzo, stay on top of the world?! Come along with this crazy cast of iconic characters and their sidesplitting, high school high jinx as Desert Star takes you through this spoof of all things 1950s.
Written by Ed Farnsworth and directed by Scott Holman, Grease’d runs from June 11 to August 22, 2015.
The evening also includes another of Desert Star’s signature musical olios following the show. The Kickin’ It Country Olio will feature some of your country music favorites, with a unique and always hilarious, Desert Star twist!
Desert Star audiences can enjoy gourmet pizza, fresh wraps, burgers, scrumptious desserts, and other finger foods, as well as a full selection of soft drinks, smoothies and a large array of iced and hot steamers and coffees while they watch the show. Food is available from an á la carte menu and is served right at your table.
