The ‘Burger Palace Boys’ are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking ‘Pink Ladies’ are looking hot in bobby sox and pedal pushers. At the heart of the story is the romance between greaser, Danny Zuko, and new girl, Sandy Dumbrowski. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still make Sandy his girl? Experience the friendships, romances, and adventures of a group of teenagers navigating the complexities of high school.
