A touch of Rydell High came to town on Oct. 20 for the ‘Grease’ Sing-a- Long-a at the Haugh Performing Art Center.

The auditorium was filled with T-Birds and Pink Ladies galore, who were given a quick vocal warm up as well as hand-jive lessons to keep up with Danny, Sandy and the whole gang on screen.

John Vaughan, interim Haugh Performing Arts Center director hosted the costume contest. Audience members gathered on stage alongside a ‘50s style vintage car on display.

Two sisters, Bella Onori, 8, and Lila Onori, 6, took first prize (a vintage Coca-Cola lunchbox) for their “Before and After Sandy” costumes.

The sing-a-long-a series presents classic musicals projected on the big screen as audience members participate and sing along to the music.
