A talented, energetic and committed young cast overcame the somewhat dated show- lots of fun! The sound system of the theater is not great.

Join Berkeley Playhouse Teens in a gum-snapping, hip-shaking, hot-rockin’ musical about love and friendship in the 50’s! School’s back from summer and the senior class is gathering for their final year at Rydell High. As head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski relive the romance of their “Summer Nights” it becomes clear that both need to change their perspective! 

Sassy, funny — evocative and provocative, this infectious musical showcases all that was fantastic about the fifties: rock n’ roll numbers that recall the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley –  plus hot-roddin, ducktailed "burger palace boys” and bobby-soxed,  pink-jacket ladies!

The show runs 2 hours.
