On Sunday morning, the anxiously awaited cast list for this year’s production of “Grease” was posted on the Drama group website. There were mixed reviews from all who auditioned.

There was discontent over the amount of juniors who received parts over seniors. While seniority does not always determine the students who get roles, it is usually taken into consideration.

“I think [the juniors] are going to do an amazing job and I think they’re really talented, but I think there are seniors who could’ve done just as good of a job,” said Kristin Collins, a senior in the musical.

However, Laura Nelson, junior, who received the role of Jan, was very happy with the casting, as were many others in the cast.

“I am just so excited about the cast list. I think it’s going to be a great show; we have really strong actors and performers,” Nelson said.

The cast consists of 30 girls and 22 boys, of all grade levels. The featured and lead roles are as follows:

Danny Zuko: Ryan Lowe Kenickie: David Gallo

Roger: Jack Cherry Doody: Yianni Kinnas

Sonny: Chris Zott Sandy: Addy Stafford

Rizzo: Cara Jaeger Frenchy: Georgie Sadler

Jan: Laura Nelson Marty: Jena Sugay

Patty: Sarah Hansen Cha Cha: Christine Hawn

Teen Angel: Will Fischer Vince Fontaine: Henry Lang-VanDerLann

Eugene: Chris Kennedy Johnny Casino: Zach Wilder

Other members of the cast include Claire Baiocchi, Jake Berg, Laena Carroll, Kaile Catalano, Jack Cherry, Ryann Chioda, Kristin Collins, Rachel Collins, Katie Cushing, Jackson Dockery, Will Fischer, Matthew Fowler, Mary Goers, Jack Grace, Sarah Hansen, Christine Hawn, Arman Haveric, Meagan House, Jackie Incerto, Gray Kafkes, Jennifer Johnson, Shannon Johnson, Amanda Koronkiewicz, Sarah Kreger, Nicole Labun, Olivia Leone, Jack Mueller, Sarah Nolin, Cooper Orlder, Johnny Pierce, Jill Pocius, Presleigh Renner, Grave Rivelli, Gabrielle Roberts, Jake Scodro, Nicole Stankus, Clare Sullivan, Timothy Tsang, and Colin Whelan.

The musical cast will be performing in next week’s variety show with a song from “Grease.” The show is scheduled to open March 7, 8, and 9.

Correction: Olivia Leone will be playing the teacher, Miss Lynch.
