Grease won the Best Production of a Musical award and the performance’s director, Libby Ricardo, won the Best Direction of a Musical award. Also winning was Karl Wells who’s portrayal of Danny Zuko nabbed him the Best Leading Actor in a Musical award.

Anna Shaffer stated in September, “We’re lucky to have such a talented local cast to tell the story of the Pink Ladies & the T-Birds; filled with teenage romance, show stopping dance moves, major fashion, and of course, great hair.”  The show was well received, and a stellar sell out for the Center for the Arts.

The cast included local notable theatre names including Elaine Lake, Wells, Corrie Frohnapfel, Lynleigh McClain, James Duffy, Anna Shaffer, Angela Chancay, Daniel Bittick, Jason Lake, Brad Ballington, Velma Polk and more.

This is big news for our local scene. HUGE congrats to everyone who had a hand in Grease.
