Step Back in Time with San Marcos High’s ‘Grease’

Pre-1960s vehicles are needed for Thursday's opening night car show

The San Marcos High School Performing Arts Department’s production of Grease is looking for all pre-1960 cars and hot rods for an opening night car show in front of the auditorium.

At 5 p.m. Thursday, drivers may park their cars on the concrete pad between the auditorium and Hollister Avenue. Popcorn and refreshments will be available, plus free admission to the opening night performance of Grease.

To sign up, contact David Holmes at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call 805.967.4581 x355.

Grease will be performed at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and May 5-8 at the school.

Rock-‘n’-roll will rule the stage in this 1972 valentine to high school in the late 1950s. Written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey as a nostalgic look back at their high school years, Grease has an appeal that strikes a chord for those who experienced the ‘50s and for all the generations that followed.

The story follows the summer romance of Danny Zuko (Ian Fisher) and the unlikely Sandy Dombrowsky (Emily Gordon), who seems to be more proper and straight-laced than the usual girl that attracts Danny’s attention. In the song “Summer Nights,” Sandy and Danny tell the story of how they met and fell in love. Thus begins the familiar plot of girl meets boy, girl loses boy and girl wins the boy in the end.

With high-spirited dances, great songs and playful story, it is no wonder this musical is the all-time favorite of audiences around the world.

Grease is directed by David Holmes and conducted by Daniel Garske, with vocal music by Carolyn Teraoka-Brady, sets and lighting by Theodore Michael Dolas, costumes by Marian Azdril and choreography by Brittany Castillo.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
