Grease is a 1972 musical by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, named for the 1950s United States working-class youth subculture known as the “greasers.” The story is set in 1959 at fictional Rydell High School and follows 10 teenagers as they navigate the complexities of love.
In 1979, Grease took over the record as the longest-running show in the history of Broadway, and the hit film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John became the highest-grossing movie musical ever.

The Burger Palace Boys are played by: sophomore Darrien Benford as Danny Zuko, sophomore Delmonte Welch as Kenickie, senior Elijah Taffe as Roger, sophomore Maliaq Dean as Doody, and freshman Malik Doss as Sonny.
Well-known songs from the musical include “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin’,” “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee,” “Freddie, My Love,” “Alma Mater,” “Alone at a Drive-In Movie,” and “We Go Together.”
