VIKING MASQUERS TRANSFORM NORTH SHORE HIGH INTO RYDELL
by Shelly Newman
North Shore Schools, Glen Head - North Shore High turned into Rydell High on March 21st and March 22nd as the Masquer’s proudly presented America’s favorite musical GREASE! As anticipated, the show was sold out as enthusiastic friends and family members packed the theatre to take a trip back to the 50’s and sing-along with Danny, Sandy, the T-Birds, Pink Ladies, and the rest of the talented cast of Grease! Popular songs included Greased Lightnin, Summer Loving, You’re the One That I Want, and We Go Together – just to name a few!
Congratulations go out to Mr. Kleba, Mr. Soto, and Mr. Kerschner for creating such a wonderful show involving nearly 100 talented cast members! Bravo to all of the cast members!
While the cast performed beautifully, the show could not have gone on without the hard work of the entire crew. The lights, costumes, hair and make-up, and sound effects were incredible! We thank you all! As always, our deep appreciation goes out to Melinda Bloom, Julia Brennan, and the Arts Angels for their dedication to our students and schools!
As promised, there were “chills” watching Sandy, Danny, Kenickie, Rizzo, Frenchy and the rest of the cast dazzle us with their acting, singing and dancing skills! The show hadn’t been performed at North Shore in over a decade and all will agree that it exceeded all expectations! As always, the Masquer’s put in all their time and effort to make yet another AMAZING production. Congratulations again to all who participated in GREASE!
