Valley Youth Theatre's 2016 / 2017 Season!

Valley Youth Theatre presents their 2016 / 2017 Season:

GREASE
August 12 – 28, 2016

Welcome to Rydell High! Meet the senior class of 1959: slick, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking "Pink Ladies" in bobby sox and pedal pushers.

When “greaser” Danny Zuko meets the new “good girl” in town, Sandy Dumbrowski, the summer before their senior year, a fun summer fling begins.  But when summers over and they end up at the same high school, everything changes.

While Danny’s only concern is maintaining his tough-guy reputation… Sandy is busy making new friends and thinking up ways to catch his eye again.

Can the Pink Ladies help Sandy figure out how to win back the leader of the Burger Palace Boys?

Fun hit tunes like "Summer Nights" & "Greased Lightnin” will have you rockin’ in your seats.
