Synopsis:  Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950’s in this rollicking musical. 

 This abridged version retains the fun-loving spirit and immortal songs that make GREASE a favorite among rock and roll fans of all ages. The School Edition eliminates all of the references and uses of cigarettes and alcohol, as well as any swearing or bad language. Practically all of the songs have undergone changes as well; the numbers are all shortened and edited for content/language.  GREASE – School Edition is considered to be G-rated.  Book, Music, and Lyrics:  Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey
