Bishop Fenwick High School to Present Grease!
 
Bishop Fenwick High School is pleased to present their Spring Musical, Grease, on March 14, 15 and 16.
 
For over 40 years, Grease has proved that a musical love story, bursting with slick hairstyles, young romance, rock’n’roll, teenage angst, and cool cars is timeless and universal.
 
A cast of Fenwick students from all over the greater North Shore area will bring the 50’s back to life on the stage at Bishop Fenwick High School.
“The cast is all having so much fun together– including several students who have never performed on stage before, as well as faculty and staff taking on cameo roles.” says producer Laurel Weatherby, who is also an Art Teacher at the school. “It’s the perfect musical for high school students . . . playing high school students! It really shows that although the clothes and the slang may change, much of being a teenager is the same today as it was in the 50's!"
 
The nearly 50 students participating in the show include Renee Carraggi of Saugus as Patty Simcox, Curtis Craffey of Lynnfield as Kenickie, Nina Finocchiaro of Saugus as Rizzo, Nina Groom of Swampscott as Frenchy, Amanda Howard of Peabody as Marty, Lauren Nicholas of Peabody as Jan, Joshua Niconchuk of Peabody as Roger, Jhonathan Oliveira of Peabody as Sonny, Katherine Pollock of Danvers as Miss Lynch, Francesca Primavera of Lynnfield as Cha Cha, Nicholas Tambini of North Reading as Danny , Craig Tattan of Beverly as Eugene, Daniel Tremblay of Peabody as Doody, Michaela Tremblay of Beverly Jenny Casino and Paige Vigneron of Marblehead as Sandy.

For Director Bob Gautreau, this is his second show with Fenwick. Gautreau, who received a Theater Education Degree from Emerson, is happy to be back working with the students of Bishop Fenwick.
 
The high school love story, written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, has thrilled audiences since breaking out on Broadway in 1972. Based on Jacobs' own experiences as an adolescent, Grease became a huge hit around the world thanks to the hit film starring Olivia Newton John and John Travolta. The show features all the unforgettable songs from the hit film including ‘You’re The One That I Want’, ‘Grease Is The Word’, ‘Summer Nights’, ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’, ‘Sandy’, ‘Greased Lightnin’ and many more.
 
Grease will be performed at Bishop Fenwick High School, 99 Margin Street, Peabody, MA. Performance times are Friday March 14th at 7pm, Saturday March 15th at 7pm and Sunday March 16th at 2pm. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and senior citizens and can be purchased at the door or online through the form below.

Bishop Fenwick High School Performed “Little Women”
 
Lovers of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women were given a new opportunity to enjoy the epic story of the March sisters with Bishop Fenwick High School’s Fall production. The family friendly show chronicled the lives of the March sisters and their mother as enchantingly told in Louisa May Alcott’s semi-autobiography about her family during the American Civil War.
 
Alcott’s coming-of-age story followed the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy as they grow up in Civil War America. Jo longs to publish a novel. Meg longs for a fiancé. Beth longs for a piano. Amy longs to be admired. The show, like the novel, tells a tale of the power of family, friendship and love.
 
Featured in Fenwick’s production of “Little Women” in December, 2013 were:
Pablo Jimenez of Salem as Mr. March
Lauren Page of Tewksbury as Mrs. March
Kelly Golden of Marblehead as Meg
Nina Groom of Swampscott as Jo
Renee Carraggi of Saugus as Beth
Nina Finocchiaro of Saugus as Amy
Carolyn Tracy of Peabody as Aunt March
Derek Dellisola of Peabody as Mr. Laurence
David Connolly of Peabody as Laurie
Sean O’Donnell of Peabody as Professor Bhaer
Dan Tremblay of Peabody as John Brooke
Laura Kennedy of Gloucester as Hannah Mullett
 
Little Women was produced by Laurel Weatherby, a faculty member of the Fine Arts Department at Bishop Fenwick. This was Weatherby’s first production at Fenwick. "I am thrilled to be working with the cast and crew of Little Women. It's a pleasure to watch the characters come to life on stage each day. The students are so talented! I want to be a tomboy with Jo, talk about clothes with Meg, sing along with Beth, and paint with Amy. I have no doubt that our audience will feel the same!"  
 
Also in his first role at Fenwick was Director Bob Gautreau.  Gautreau, who received a Theater Education Degree from Emerson, is impressed with the students of Bishop Fenwick. “You would never know that they are high school students on stage.” said Gautreau. “Their professionalism is impressive and I have really enjoying working with this group.”
 
The production ran in Bishop Fenwick’s Auditorium December 13 at 7pm, December 14 at 7pm and December 15 at 2pm.
