Grease to open at the Brockville Arts Centre on December 8th



Brockville native Madeleine Palmer watched many talented St. Lawrence College Music Theatre Performance students over the years in their annual productions. Now, it’s her turn as she gets ready to play the lead role of Sandy in the St. Lawrence College production of Grease. The show runs at the Brockville Arts Centre on December 8, 9, 10, at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday December 11 at 2:00 p.m.

“I am so excited! We have all worked extremely hard to create a fantastic show together and I can't wait to put it on,” said Madeleine, who is in the second year of the program. “Having grown up in Brockville, I have seen many of the amazing shows that SLC has put on. Watching those shows and seeing the talented students up there made me eager to enter the program and be a part of it all. I have learned so much from this experience, from everyone I've worked with, and I hope this will be a great stepping stone for my future.”

Set in 1959 at fictional Rydell High School, Grease follows ten teenagers as they navigate the complexities of love, cars, and drive-ins. The show tackles such social issues as teenage pregnancy and gang violence; its themes include love, friendship, and teenage rebellion. Featured favourite songs include “Summer Loving”, “Greased Lightning” and “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee.”

In the lead role of Danny, and also in second year is Kory Fulton of Saint John, New Brunswick, who is more than ready to take on the iconic role. “Becoming Danny has been a thrill!” he said. “It's so fun letting my inner-ego out and becoming the smooth, confident leader that Danny is. It can be a lot of pressure knowing that Danny has a legacy ever since the movie, but I just remain confident in what I'm doing and I have as much fun with the part that I can.”

Also starring in the lead roles of Danny and Sandy are Mike St. Amant, who hails from Midland, Ontario, and Monica Szustakowski from Mississauga. Grease is directed by Matthew Lundvall, music direction by Christopher Coyea and choreography by Janet Venn Jackson.
