Darlington’s fine arts department will present the rock 'n' roll musical "Grease" Feb. 15-17 at Rome City Auditorium. Friday and Saturday shows will be at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday’s show will be at 2:30 p.m.

Set in 1959, the story follows a group of teenagers at Rydell High School. Over the summer Danny Zuko (played by senior Will Warren) falls in love with Sandy Dumbrowski (played by junior Elizabeth Wilhoite). The musical picks up at the beginning of a new school year when some surprises shake up Rydell.

"It's a really fun story that includes memorable music and some wonderful opportunities for our students to dance their socks off," said John Plough, theater director. "Everyone involved has been working incredibly hard. We hope lots of people will come out and see our production!"

The score tries to recreate the sounds of early rock 'n' roll. Fans of the film will be able to hear their favorite numbers including "Summer Nights," "Greased Lightnin'," "Look at Me I'm Sandra Dee," "We Go Together," "Born to Hand Jive," "Beauty School Dropout," "Sandy" and "There Are Worse Things I Could Do."

Admission is $10 for adults and $7 for children, students and senior citizens. Tickets are available at Kroger, Traditions of Rome, and all three divisions of Darlington School. They can be purchased from Wendy Payne at the Lower School; Jennifer Talley at the Middle School; and Denise Evans, Ellen Ryan or Stephanie Fleming at the Upper School.) They may also be purchased at the door. Reserved seats are $15 and must be purchased online.
