Three Storm Lakers among a huge cast

Rydell High School is ready for the first day of school. The Burger Palace beckons. And Greased Lightning is getting its final coat of paint.

"Grease!" is set to open in Schaller Memorial Chapel on the campus of Buena Vista University tonight, and will run through Saturday, April 30, with show times at 8 p.m.

Each night will feature a different '50s Fun Contest. One night will include a Hula-Hoop contest, another a '50s Trivia and Name That Tune contest, and on Saturday there will be a group of vintage cars parked on College Street with their owners, so you can get the true flavor of 1959.

Root beer floats served up by CommUnity Ed and Concordia School at intermission will add to the "Grease!" experience.

complete the atmosphere, making Grease more than just a play - it's an experience!
