Start off the summer with the new stars of Grease, Taylor Louderman and Bobby Conte Thornton performing May 28- June 29 at the Papermill Playhouse. They join host Robin Milling during their rehearsal in New York to talk about taking on the beloved roles of Sandy Dumbrowski and Danny Zuko. Broadway theater lovers may remember Taylor from Bring It On, but Bobby is making his musical stage debut while still in college balancing musical theater with playing tennis at the University of Michigan.
Bobby tells Robin their show promises to take on more inspiration from the stage version than the movie which starred Olivia Newton John and John Travolta. The one change is adding 'Hopelessly Devoted To You' to their show which wasn't in the original musical. The other classic songs remain the same, but the two actors admit they had to step it up a bit learning the 50s style choreography of 'Hand Jive' by JoAnn M. Hunter. For their homework as members of the highschool gangs the Greasers and the Pink Ladies, they can still recall their former selves in highschool.
Both Taylor and Bobby are the first in their families to make their way into show business. Bobby comes from a family of scientists while Taylor who grew up in Bourbon, Missouri says 'the cattle population exceeds the human population and there's really no theater!' Their families are very supportive of their careers and will no doubt be front row and center to see them starring in Grease!

Since 2013 S.C.G.R (Southwest.Cooking.Grease.Recycling) has dedicated our time to providing an invaluable service to global economies and the environment. Nationwide, restaurants are dumping oil illegally, effecting our land and water. Many small time restaurants do not display the proper oil disposal procedure causing them to get rid of their waste by any means possible. Meanwhile, they continue to cook and oil waste continues to grow in volume. As for residential homes, same thing occurs; residents either dump their household grease in the sink or toilet causing problems with the plumbing or freeze their household oil and throw it away in the garbage. Neither way of disposal are correct.

PHRASES like “tiger mom” and “helicopter parent” . But does overparenting hurt, or help?While parents who are clearly and embarrassingly inappropriate come in for ridicule, many of us find ourselves drawn to the idea that with just a bit more parental elbow grease, we might turn out children with great talents and assured futures. Is there really anything wrong with a kind of “overparenting lite”?
Decades of studies, many of them by Diana Baumrind, a clinical and developmental psychologist at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that the optimal parent is one who is involved and responsive, who sets high expectations but respects her child’s autonomy. These “authoritative parents” appear to hit the sweet spot of parental involvement and generally raise children who do better academically, psychologically and socially than children whose parents are either permissive and less involved, or controlling and more involved. Why is this particular parenting style so successful, and what does it tell us about overparenting?
For one thing, authoritative parents actually help cultivate motivation in their children. Carol Dweck, a social and developmental psychologist at Stanford University, has done research that indicates why authoritative parents raise more motivated, and thus more successful, children.In a typical experiment, Dr. Dweck takes young children into a room and asks them to solve a simple puzzle. Most do so with little difficulty. But then Dr. Dweck tells some, but not all, of the kids how very bright and capable they are. . They also exhibit higher levels of confidence and show greater overall progress in puzzle-solving.http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/05/opinion/sunday/raising-successful-children.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

Oh My God! Michael Jackson. Janet Jackson. Public Enemy. New Edition. UTFO.
Yes! I remember.
Well what about FUBU clothes, family bar-be-cues, and "Battlin" "Breakin" & "Rappin" in the street? Taping "For Lovers' Only" on a cassette tape? Racing home to see "He-Man" or "Thundercats" cartoons? Frying up french fries with the old grease sitting on the stove in the Crisco can? Drinking sugar water cuz you didn't have any Kool-Aid? And having to be home before the street lights came up?
Dang, Mama. Its summer time! Oh, so I was the only one begging? REALLY?
This was a time when only doctors had pagers and only lawyers and business men needed phones. When there was no such thing as a home computer. Television only had five channels and went off at 2am. When the only cable company was "Preview" after 8pm. Oh no, no Netflix and Hula Plus? And we were told, "Children should be seen; not heard"
