Grease Hits the BCS Stage!


The cast and crew of Grease are ready to entertain with this classic musical presenting 1950s teenagers navigating their social scenes with great music and dancing!  Directed by Mrs. Romance and Mrs. Brennan, this show will be performed for free on Friday and Saturday, March 24th and 25th, with a matinee for BCS students on Thursday at 12:30.  

The show’s dancing, choreographed by Mrs. Romance, will be a highlight. Abby Sullivan, who plays Marty, HS student, and Beauty Angel, says “Learning the dance to ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’ with my partner was so much fun and very entertaining!”  Kyle McCumisky, portraying Roger, says “The highlight of preparing for the show to me is the very intense choreography.  I believe it will be the best in Belfast history.”  There is a particular scene to look out for, according to Abby:  “I think the audience will find Rizzo and Kenicke’s solo for the dance off very impressive.  A lot of hard work was put into it and it looks amazing!” 

The characters in Grease are iconic!  Cassondra Guilford plays Betty Rizzo, and says “she’s stubborn, salty, and aggressive, and makes some questionable decisions throughout the show.”  Abby describes her character, Marty, as “very boy crazy and the ‘pretty girl’ of the group.  She acts very grown up for her age.  I have a lot of fun playing this role because it is outside of my comfort zone so it adds to the excitement of the show for me.”  Kyle identifies with his character, Roger:  “We would both do anything for a laugh.”  

Every great show needs spectacular sets!  From Burger Palace to the famous car, “Greased Lightning,” the scenery is vivid and unique.  Mrs. Brennan, Mrs. Romance the cast, and other community members have pitched in to help!  

Prepare for a show that will knock your socks off!  Great vocals, dancing, and amazing sets, costumes, and lighting will bring the story of Grease to life at BCS!
