The thought of portraying one of film's most iconic characters on the stage scared the spotlight-loving Danielle Ridge. But, when the time came for the 16-year-old to don the sweet A-line dresses and sweaters of Sandy Dumbrowski, she was filled with excitement.
She also wanted to give Estancia High School alumni Joanna Schroeder, who played Sandy in 1982, a performance worthy of her own.
"I wanted to give her a really good show," junior Danielle said. "I wanted her to be able to watch that great show that she put on. She already knows what it feels like, but I wanted to show her what it looked like."
Estancia High School's spring musical production of "Grease" paid tribute to its past with a 30-year reunion of the 1982 cast of "Grease," while breaking new ground — Saturday was the drama department's third night of sell-out shows. The outpouring of support spurred an added performance on Friday.
