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!

No matter what, don’t throw your turkey grease down the drain. Why, you ask? Colleen will explain and give you alternate solutions, too. First, she’ll tell us what kind of damage grease can to do your pipes, why it can cause costly repair bills and how it can yuk-up our sewer lines. Next, she’ll tell us what we can do with it. The 10th Annual Friday after Thanksgiving Grease Recycling Day hosted by Clean Cities and their partners encourages you to pour that grease into a container and bring it to one of five collection sites around the city and Sahuarita. This event also helps build awareness for the use of both biodiesel and yes – even straight vegetable oil as alternative fuels. FYI - all of the grease you “donate” will be recycled into biodiesel – you’ve got to love that. This show sponsored by Pima Association of Governments.

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.

Award-winning actor Barry Bostwick reminisces about The Rocky Horror Picture Show in this annual October tribute to that bizarre cult classic. Bostwick speaks candidly about his experience while making the film -- including weather problems, what it was like working with Susan Sarandon, his favorite scenes in the movie, and much more.
Boasting credits in over 100 films and TV productions, Bostwick may be best-known as the clueless mayor on Spin City, but he's a triple-threat entertainer -- singer, dancer, actor -- who created the role of Danny Zuko in Grease on Broadway and won a Tony for his work in The Robber Bridegroom. He's also a Golden Globe winner for his performance in TV's War and Remembrance. Among Bostwick's many films are: Movie, Movie; 101 Dalmations II; Spy Hard; Some Guy Who Kills People; and FDR: American Badass! His upcoming movies include Slay Bells, a horror flick in which he plays Santa, as well as the comedy Diani & Devine Meet the Apocalypse.
Although The Rocky Horror Picture Show bombed when it first opened in 1975, entertaining midnight showings soon catapulted the film into cult status. And the movie got a big boost when TV's Glee featured its own version of the outrageous musical numbers.
