With Triboro Youth Theatre's Spring season in full swing, we are proud to be bringing brand new performances to the Thacher stage! Our High School production this season is the 1950's classic rock & roll musical Grease! But when you mount such a legendary, iconic musical there are some key elements you need to make sure fall into place! One of the biggest "props" of the show, is Kenickie's car; the famous "Greased Lightning!" Everyone remembers his beat up car from the 1978 motion picture, but just exactly how do you bring it to life for the stage?
The solution to this problem requires a lot of planning! You have to take into consideration the size of the stage, the size of the actors, the number of actors, and of course, where are you going to store it? Although we would have loved to have a "real" car on stage, we had to create a logical solution! So we thought you might enjoy to take the journey with us, and see for yourself how our "Greased Lightning" was created!
