Teen Theatre auditions for GREASE were to be this month, and production was slated for July.

Watching the performers on hay wagon stages, audiences will be seated on their own blankets and lawn chairs. Or they may remain in their cars if they wish. There will be sufficient lighting. Performers will be mic’d, and — along with the music — be piped through outdoor speakers.
Call 269-251-0302 and director Cheryl Hansen Showalter will answer any questions or address any concerns.
