Singers, dancers and artists of all kinds are invited to audition for San Diego City College’s upcoming spring musical, “Grease,” in the Saville Theatre Feb. 7 at 12 p.m..

The 1971 musical turned 1979 classic film showcases the life of the leather jacket wearing greasers, the T-birds and their companions the Pink Ladies, enjoying the California sun as aimless teenagers in the ‘50s.

“It is a fabulous, funny, wonderful show,” June Richards, professor and director of the theatre and drama program, said.

“Grease” tells the story about an American boy, Danny Zuko, leader of the T-Brirds and an Australian girl, Sandy Olsson – whose summer fling can’t be forgotten after unexpectedly seeing each other attending the same school.

Production for the show will begin April 10th, a total of 9 performances, until April 26th.

“Everyone is invited to audition. We require students to sign up for our production course,” Richards said.
