"Grease" Takes Over Eldorado Showroom
You can revisit the world of the T-Birds and Pink Ladies at Rydell High with the energetic classic rock 'n' roll musical “Grease,” playing at the Eldorado showroom now through November 10.
Editor Matthew B. Brown and I had the opportunity to attend the musical, which features old-fashioned fun and just the right amount of laughter mixed with breathtaking singing. Having never seen "Grease" before I really wasn't sure what to expect. I found myself laughing out loud within the first few seconds after the curtains opened, and it was all uphill from there.
As one of the longest-running shows of all time and among the most produced shows in the United States, "Grease" has kept fans coming back for decades. It’s the story of a popular tough guy, Danny, and Sandy, a virgin do-goody, who reunite at school after a summer fling. Sandy finds that Danny has changed from the boy that she knew over the summer and has to decide whether or not they're a good match.
Guests will have a rockin', rollin' good time singing along to songs from the hit motion picture like, "Summer Nights," "Beauty School Dropout," "Born to Hand Jive," and "Greased Lightnin’." Don't miss the energetic crowd-pleaser that's fun for the whole family.
Performances are nightly except Monday with showtimes Sunday and Tuesday through Thursday at 7 p.m., Friday at 8 p.m., and Saturday at 7 and 9:30 p.m. (schedule is subject to change). For more information, call 800-648-5966 or visit eldoradoreno.com.
