Written by composer, lyricist and librettists Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, Grease is described as such: "Set in 1959 at Rydell High School, Grease follows the lives of ten working-class teenagers as they follow their hearts and their dreams. While the musical score recreates the sounds of a bygone era, the story deals with issues that are still current – falling in love, fitting in, never giving up on your goals."
The production will also feature choreography by Michelle Gaudette, music direction by Ken Clifton, scenic design by Cliff Simon, costume design by Lisa Zinni, lighting design by Richard Winkler and sound design by Craig Beyrooti with Ingrid Olson as stage manager and Nikki Baldwin as assistant stage manager.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
