Danny, Sandy and all the gang are rockin’ and boppin’ on stage as they explore the cliques, chicks and guitar licks that were every day fare in the 50s. Our show is loaded with music, dance and a lot of heartfelt high school angst, but as a school version it’s appropriate for all ages. Tickets are $7 for adults and $6 for students and seniors.
