Singers, dancers and artists of all kinds are invited to audition for San Diego City College’s upcoming spring musical, “Grease,” in the Saville Theatre Feb. 7 at 12 p.m..

The 1971 musical turned 1979 classic film showcases the life of the leather jacket wearing greasers, the T-birds and their companions the Pink Ladies, enjoying the California sun as aimless teenagers in the ‘50s.

“It is a fabulous, funny, wonderful show,” June Richards, professor and director of the theatre and drama program, said.

“Grease” tells the story about an American boy, Danny Zuko, leader of the T-Brirds and an Australian girl, Sandy Olsson – whose summer fling can’t be forgotten after unexpectedly seeing each other attending the same school.

Production for the show will begin April 10th, a total of 9 performances, until April 26th.

“Everyone is invited to audition. We require students to sign up for our production course,” Richards said.

    I really hope you get this right. That was an important period for America, those were the children that would later be drafted or forced to flee the nation.

    Really don’t mess this up.

    Whoa! Touchy about a little criticism, are we? See how important that era was? That time, the beginning of the Cold War and immediately before the Cuban Crisis, was the ending of Amnerica’s last bit of innocence in the nation, when the Beaver got drafted and left home never to return.

    It helps that a play like this be understood, it means a lot to those of us whose families have been in America to understand what the play’s really about.

    But, don’t get so touchy about things. Maybe it’s only a musical.
