Alton Little Theater presents: Grease (Benefit Youth Musical)
Jul 9 @ 7:30 pm

A “kid-friendlier” version of the old classic, this production of Grease follows Danny, leader of the “Burger Palace Boys”, a super-cool group of high school wheeler-dealers, and the sweet, wholesome, and naive Sandy. However, Danny can’t be seen falling for just one girl, and Sandy falls in with The Pink Ladies, but doesn’t quite fit in. Someone’s got to change. Will Sandy attempt to get Danny by turning him into a jock, or will she lose her sweet “Sandra Dee” image?
You’ll recognize many of the songs, but this production has some new great numbers as well!

Showtimes are:
Thursday, July 9 – Saturday, July 11 at 7:30 pm
Sunday, July 12 at 2 pm
Thursday, July 16 – Saturday, July 18 at 7:30 pm
Sunday, July 19 at 2 pm

Tickets are $20 for adults and $8 for students. Group rates are available. For more information, please visit altonlittletheater.org or call (618) 462-3205.
