This special morning show will be the children's production of Johnny Appleseed. This story is based on the lore of Johnny Appleseed, otherwise known as John Chapman (1774-1845). Johnny spent most of his life traveling from house to house on the frontier. He was a story-teller, gospel sharer, and apple extoller. The apples and the trees that bore them were his mission and his message. This play will be a fun-filled supposition about how Johnny spent his time in Indiana on one of his visits.

The year is 1959 where we find duck-tailed, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking "Pink Ladies" in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head "greaser" Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'", "It's Raining on Prom Night", "Alone at the Drive-In Movie" recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.
